Spring Security

Enable Spring security (web.xml):

<!-- spring security -->

The /* mapping ensures that every request is filtered through the Spring Security interceptor.

DelegatingFilterProxy delegates to a Spring injected Filter bean (FilterChainProxy)


  • registered by spring using id : “springSecurityFilterChain”
  • chains together additional filters

Make sure XML configuration for Spring security is loaded, otherwise : “No bean named ‘springSecurityFilterChain’ is defined”
