Exploring Spring Security 3

I am finally back to writing again after an absence of almost year and half. I will try to be more regular from now now. In this edition I will start with Spring Security 3. This will be a series of posts where I will try to build a very simple photo uploading and sharing service. This is actually my PoC with Spring Security 3.

Spring Security unlike most Spring product portfolio is a not at all well documented. The tutorials available on googling are mostly outdated. Spring Security 3 certainly by look of things seems to be a very good feature rich product yet hefty beast. So here is my attempt to conquer it.

Skyphoto Basic Requirements

  1. Securely upload photos into your account
  2. Download photos
  3. Share photos with friends and other application

In the course of this simple application development I will try to uncover most of the features of Spring Security. I will use Restful services support provided by Spring MVC so that I can expose a simple API for external applications which will consume the services of Skyphoto.

  1. Thank you for doing this. I have always been interested in learning about Spring Security, but kept putting it off. I will be following your posts closely with the hope of quickly learning important concepts.
