Hi Peter,

Since Spring 3 Security lives on its own and can be
applied but not necessarily...what is the most surprising
combination of framework and Spring 3 Security you
have encountered?

...and, on the other hand, where would you not apply
Spring 3 Security?

Cheers,

Gian

Hello Gian,

Both good questions!

Personally, my favorite project using Spring Security was one combining Spring Security and Wicket. I love Wicket, it's an incredibly fun framework to develop UIs in, and the integration with Spring Security (2) at the time was very elegant and easy.

I would not recommend Spring Security if you already have a complex, homegrown system that suits the needs of the business. In this case, it can be difficult to justify the effort and learning curve of replacing something homegrown with something out of the box and functionally equivalent - although as a technologist, I would love to, it can be hard to make a good argument to business sponsors.

Hope that answers your question!

Peter

I agree, convincing the business sponsors is tough at times
