We are trying to implement security for our application. Which is the better approach?

To implement it at the screen level using the security-constraint of the web.xml or at the Data element level in the Data model.

Security is a big area. What are you trying to protect?

"Angela C",

There aren't many rules that you need to worry about here on the Ranch, but one that we take very seriously regards the use of proper names. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.
