This course will teach a Java programmer to add robust security to their web applications. Just like Facebook requires you to login before you can access your profile page, I will teach you how to stop unauthorized users from accessing the protected pages in your Java web application. No prior experience with Spring Security is needed. I'll show you exactly how to take your new or existing Java web application and make it so that you can protect certain pages/URLs from unauthorized users. What is an unauthorized user? Anyone who hasn't yet provided a username and password that matches an entry in your database! I even show you how to assign roles to user accounts so you can custom tailor the user experience. Basic users, Admin users, Super users, whatever user role you'd like to create, you can weave them into your web application and have it respond in dynamic ways You'll learn how to integrate Spring Security directly into your existing database and protect whichever pages you like in less than a day. Plus I show you exactly how to handle the always pesky "set up" process so it'll be a pain free experience for you.
