I was cruising the blogosphere today and encountered one of the shortest blogs I’ve ever read. To quote nearly the entire entry, “Every time you use Acegi, a fairy dies. The sad thing is there really isn’t anything better around…”.
Between our community forums, developer lists, JIRA, user conference BOFs, training, support, consulting and team blog, we receive a great deal of community feedback. There is little doubt that many people have sought improvements to the Spring Security (formerly Acegi) configuration format, and we’ve invested a lot of time in making that possible.
