Hi All,
I want to know about web security as what it is, what are its different types and how can it be achieved. Any useful link will be better. And does Struts 2.0 provides it or not?

"Web Security" is a generic term that can mean anything from choosing a strong password to encryption to physically securing servers.
Struts is an implementation of the Front Controller pattern and therefore provides no security itself.
If one wants to secure a Struts web application (i.e. require authentication and authorisation to view secured resources), one can use the JEE standard Declarative Security or a third-party product like Spring Security.
