Hi Eugen,

How strong or powerful is Spring Security compared to other security frameworks like JAAS, Apache Shiro, Acegi, SSL, LDAP, etc..?
How about integration of these other techs with Spring Security?
What are the most exciting features of Spring Security? I am very much excited to learn those and hence very excited to win this course

Regards,
-Pankaj.

Hey Pankaj - let me first answer the first part of your question by linking to another question I answered yesterday about the differences between Spring Security and other frameworks - JAAS and Shiro: Spring Security vs other frameworks

Now, looking at your list of technologies there, we have a few more. LDAP for example isn't necessarily a competing framework, it's more of an underlying tech that is usually used in the security stack, and yes, Spring Security has solid native integration with LDAP.
And Acegi is the old name of Spring Security - they're the same framework (of course Spring Security has evolved a lot since the days of Acegi).

Finally, the most exciting features - that's definitely an interesting question
I can tell you what I'm most excited about - it's the stuff in the last few modules of the course (have a look at the breakdown on the course page).

Hope that helps. Cheers,
Eugen.

Hey Pankaj - so, to answer your cloud question - if you mean the new Spring Cloud project - yes, that's definitely an interesting one. Most of it is not really related to security, but there is a small part of it that is - so I'll be covering that part in a bonus lesson after launch.
Good luck with the contest and keep in touch,
Cheers,
Eugen.
