What to expect when I finish these two courses?
By the time you finish these two courses (about 4 hours video), you should be able to understand most of the problems related to Spring Security 4. You will understand how to approach various issues related to security in web app development and how to utilize the power of Spring Security to solve those issues.
What is Spring Security?
Spring Security is a powerful and highly customizable authentication and access-control framework. It is the de-facto standard for securing Spring-based applications.
Spring Security provides comprehensive security services for Java EE-based enterprise software applications. There is a particular emphasis on supporting projects built using The Spring Framework, which is the leading Java EE solution for enterprise software development.
People use Spring Security for many reasons, but most are drawn to the project after finding the security features of Java EEâ€™s Servlet Specification or EJB Specification lack the depth required for typical enterprise application scenarios. Whilst mentioning these standards, itâ€™s important to recognize that they are not portable at a WAR or EAR level. Therefore, if you switch server environments, it is typically a lot of work to reconfigure your applicationâ€™s security in the new target environment. Using Spring Security overcomes these problems, and also brings you dozens of other useful, customizable security features.
What about this course?
This course introduce some of the basics of Spring Security 4 with hands-on coding. We will use a demo web app called â€œCleaning Service Centerâ€ as example to see how we can enhanced the security layer of it step by step. After the initial take, we will dive a little deeper and see how we can customize the Authentication mechanism with the flexibility provided by Spring Security.
Why XML Configuration?
The course uses XML based configuration.
Spring Boot will remove a lot of the boiler-plate code and configurations, which will give us great convenience to quickly develop an app. However, it will also hide things under the hood. That is to say, itâ€™s better to do the manual configuration and coding first so that we can have a better understanding.
Class-based configuration is good to use, but again, you can get more insight with XML configuration. As class-based configuration and XML based configuration are well mapped, you can always find the corresponding part by googling it.
