Re: GWT and Web Security

I have kind of an aversion for everything Spring, and haven't had the need for anything more complex than checking user roles at the method level.

 We are using Spring pretty heavily and it does seem to add a huge layer of complexity and I'm not quite sure to what benefit (apart from DI).

For CAS auth integration I do seem to spend a lot of time trying to get Spring to let me get at what I need or work around the Spring "convenience" code.

@PreAuthorize on getters and setters has been pretty good though. I was reluctant to introduce an expression language but we have had no real problems.

Finally a plug for my project if you are using RF and want the app to be able to carry on after an auth failure...
