A (re)introduction to Spring Security
Spring Security (formerly known as Acegi Security) is a very powerful and flexible security framework for Java. Based on the Spring Framework, Spring Security provides declarative method and web level security including a wealth of options for meeting your application's specific security needs.
Despite Spring Security's great power and flexibility, it has historically been overly complex and difficult to configure. But all that has changed with the release of Spring Security 2. This new incarnation of Spring Security brings adds simplicity to power.
In this session, we'll explore the Spring Security framework and see how easy it is to use the new configuration elements and annotations to enable security in Java based applications.
