  • performance and scability.

    Exactly how scalable is spring security system.

    Like are their large web sites (having over million of users that uses it).

    How would you scale web application using spring security?

    Thanks

    bump to see if anybody can answer.

      The question is too vague and has no definite answer. The scalability of an application will have a lot more to do with the application itself than whether it is using Spring Security or not.

        hmm well right the application is like this.

        The application has method security, channel security, url security, persistent login go through DB. .

        The application hasn't implemented acl domain object security yet.

        Would performance degrade?
        1.) Like example changing password requires you to clear cache, clear secure context.
        2.) Going through all the interceptor chain before you finally decide which page to load?
        3.) Increasing the number of users.

        Is their more memory required to use spring security especially remember me login.

        Are their any tips in making application using spring security high performing?

          actually can you provide at least 2 or 3 large scale web sites (as in 5 million or more concurrent user per site) that uses spring security.

            Wow, that's a busy site...

            Does any site has 5 million concurrent users? Do you simply mean registered?

              Leaving aside the 5 million concurrent users, organizations generally prefer to keep the details of their security implementations private, so this is not really a sensible question either. I am aware of many organizations using Spring Security/Acegi but that information is generally confidential. You can of course find information on the web on other projects and products which use the framework and hence draw the implication that their clients are also indirectly using it.

              Whether your application scales adequately is something you would generally establish empirically as part of a project, based on its requirements and the anticipated number of users. Perhaps if you expand on what those actually are or ask more specific questions then you will get sensible answers.
