This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
Unfortunately we do not cover this topic in the book, mainly because as of the time I wrote it, Spring Web Services did not yet support Spring Security 3. Hopefully I will be able to cover this in a blog article or a 2nd edition of the book
That said, the fundamentals of Spring Security 3 are covered quite well, and would certainly help if you are using Spring Security to wrap homebrew or other web services.
