Hello All,

I am new to Spring security and authentication. I am asked to modify this
example to include spring security in it. It can be either using Spring security or Spring ACEGI plugin. It is said that, i don't need to make any UI for this.
It is said that i need to create required tables for Security implementation, so that I will be able to add User, assign Authority and resource to access.
I can simply create tables and add data for testing. I don't need to create any UI for this. You can generate DB layer by using any tool.

Now my question is as i am new to this and this task has a very short time-span, can someone tell me which one is better to use. Spring ACEGI or Spring
Security itself. Can someone give me some good pointers to start with?

Looking forward to hear from you.

Acegi was renamed to Spring Security. Where to start? At the official page: http://static.springsource.org/spring-security/site/start-here.html
