Spring security tag lib

To do Spring security Client Integration, we will be decorating our existing JSP pages with Spring security tag library.

1. Add the spring tag-lib

below code at the top of our existing JSP ( home.jsp from Spring MVC tutorial )

<%@ taglib uri="http://www.springframework.org/security/tags" prefix="sec" %>

The URI doesn't download, it's contained within the JAR.

There are three tags that are very important for the purpose of this tutorial to discuss.

authorise : Used to determine whether the contents within this element should be evaluated or not.

authentication: Used primarily to gain access to the object that represents the current logged in user

accesscontrollist: This is used when working with access controls or which are commonly known as “akles”.

2. Lets add the Spring tag lib dependency
