Spring Security is the basis for the new(est) Grails security plugin.

Does the book provide any information or coverage on the use of Spring Security in other frameworks? Or, does it provide enough info so that we can use that knowledge in other frameworks aside from the typical Spring MVC scenario?

Looking forward to checking out the book, this is an area with not a lot of documentation and info, IMO.

Thanks!

Hello Andrew,

I hate to give you this answer, but unfortunately no, there was enough material to cover just going over the features of the framework in the depth I felt was sensible that we didn't cover Spring Sec's integration with other major frameworks. This was an unfortunate choice, because I personally have used Spr Sec in JSF and Wicket projects successfully (though not Grails) and would have loved to have cover these. I'm hopeful that this will be adequately covered in the near future by myself or another aspiring author

The book should certainly give you a very thorough understanding of Spring Security and how it works, so at least conceptually, the book should give you a good foundation for integrating into whatever UI framework you choose to support.

Hope that answers your question?

Best,
Peter

Sure!

It looks to be a pretty in depth guide to Spring Security, which should definitely give someone the ammo to go use it in another framework if they choose.

Thanks for stopping by the JavaRanch!
