I am confused in choosing spring security or acegi security

I came to know that acegi security is developed using spring and now called as spring security.
but i have downloaded spring security 3.0.2 and extracted it. but i did't find anything related to
acegi.

I tried to find the difference between the two. but i realized that both look similar to me.

I also tried some sample with acegi it has lot of confusing configuration .

please some one help me. which is better and why ?

They are really the same project - Spring Security is the new name and Acegi Security was the old name.

You can implement Spring Security (nee Acegi) as Servlet filters to intercept requests, or annotate models. The view layer library doesn't really impact this decision...
