S2 interceptors vs acegi.

Hi all,

we are about to start a new project with S2 and been asked to see if acegi will be a good idea to integrate into our new application. In our past projects, we've wrote our own 'interceptors' for authorization/authentication issues (and we are very confident with that)

I searched about acegi and couldn't see the added-value to our new project. Can anyone come with an example of how acegi can easily solve a problem that interceptors will be very hard to implement?

thanks for any thoughts.

Acegi allows very fine-grained access control to *everything*, not just web pages. If you're already using Spring then it may be worth it.

If you're just doing something with web pages then it might not be worth the learning curve.

You'd be better off asking about the advantages of Acegi in a Spring list/forum, though.
With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
