  • finally the AHa moment I've been waiting for

    I can finally talk about the authentication! It's taken me a while b/c the chaining is known but I've never used it. No offense meant but the spring mvc and step by step was fast so I figured this would be too!

    Where it comes together is in the AuthenticationProcessingFilter. If you don't understand the acegi take a look at it b/c this method call this.getAuthenticationManager().authenticate(authR equest); is what it is all about. Also the authorization at a method level started making sense.

    From the samples app war I pasted the following entry which now makes some sense to me.

    <bean id="filterInvocationInterceptor" class="net.sf.acegisecurity.intercept.web.FilterSe curityInterceptor">
    <property name="authenticationManager"><ref bean="authenticationManager"/></property>
    <property name="accessDecisionManager"><ref local="httpRequestAccessDecisionManager"/></property>
    <property name="objectDefinitionSource">

    I had to take inventory of the ways or scenarios you can hit a web server and what that means. This (above) is one scenario where you need to authenticate. Basic and anonymous are some others.
