"Spring in Action" does cover Acegi. The coverage is focused on what was available in Acegi when we wrote it...Acegi has evolved a little bit since then, though.

EJB security focuses on controlling access to an EJB's methods. Acegi provides the same sort of control to a POJO, via Spring AOP. But that's not all...

Acegi extends that control out to the web-layer by providing access control around servlet-based web requests, using servlet filters. (Notice that I didn't say Spring MVC-based requests...Acegi can be used to secure any servlet-based web application.)

Acegi also provides a flexible framework for authentication, allowing you to easily choose between HTTP Basic authentication, form-based authentication, or even use Yale CAS for single sign-on authentication. But if none of those suit your needs, Acegi is highly interface-based, so you're welcome to provide your own authentication mechanism by implementing Acegi interfaces.

And there's more to Acegi, but I don't want to waste a lot of space here repeating what our book and Acegi's own documentation already adequately spell out. In short, Acegi provides a flexible security framework around POJOs and/or servlets.

How can we unit Tests using the Spring Framework especially for DAOs using the Hibernate Sorted Set. Is Junit Testing covered in Spring in Action.

Which version of Spring is it covering. ?

I have been using Spring for the last 6 months and i love it.
The features i like are Transaction Management
Database connection providers could be changed easily under the hood.
Bean Factory
