I am new at using Roo. I was going through the Chapter 2 Tutorial (Pizza Shop). When, I added security via the security setup command followed by the perform eclipse command. I was seeing errors in the applicationContext-security.xml file. There were lots of missing files. After some investigation, I noticed that the POM had the spring security version set to 3.02. I changed this to the latest version 3.04 and that fixed the problem.
