Spring MVCSpring MVC

Hi Team, We are currently managing an application which was developed using Apache Wicket. Recently, we had upgraded our application from Wicket 6.30 to 8.11. Considering the amount of time we spent for upgrade and lack of wicket skilled developers, its becoming hard to maintain the application. We are planning to migrate the application from Wicket to AngularJS. Please advise on the best approach and any tools which can migrate wicket components to Angular and Spring components.

Thanks, Satya

AngularJS lets you write client-side web applications as if you had a smarter browser. It lets you use good old HTML (or HAML, Jade and friends!) as your template language and lets you extend HTML’s syntax to express your application’s components clearly and succinctly. It automatically synchronizes data from your UI (view) with your JavaScript objects (model) through 2-way data binding.
A key element of Spring is infrastructural support at the application level: Spring focuses on the "plumbing" of enterprise applications so that teams can focus on application-level business logic, without unnecessary ties to specific deployment environments.
