    Out of the box, no. However, this is very simple to implement. One way is to write an application event listener and listen for the AbstractAuthenticationFailureEvent event.

        Unfortunately I can't post the exact code (due to NDA) but if you read the manual regarding application events this isn't hard at all to implement.

        This really depends on what your authentication source is (DAO, LDAP, etc.) typically you would set the "accountNonLocked" property of your User/UserDetails being returned by your UserDetailsService (assuming you have a custom one) accordingly.
