This week's giveaway is in the EJB and other Java EE Technologies forum. We're giving away four copies of EJB 3 in Action and have Debu Panda, Reza Rahman, Ryan Cuprak, and Michael Remijan on-line! See this thread for details.
Spring Security is the basis for the new(est) Grails security plugin.
Does the book provide any information or coverage on the use of Spring Security in other frameworks? Or, does it provide enough info so that we can use that knowledge in other frameworks aside from the typical Spring MVC scenario?
Looking forward to checking out the book, this is an area with not a lot of documentation and info, IMO.
I hate to give you this answer, but unfortunately no, there was enough material to cover just going over the features of the framework in the depth I felt was sensible that we didn't cover Spring Sec's integration with other major frameworks. This was an unfortunate choice, because I personally have used Spr Sec in JSF and Wicket projects successfully (though not Grails) and would have loved to have cover these. I'm hopeful that this will be adequately covered in the near future by myself or another aspiring author
The book should certainly give you a very thorough understanding of Spring Security and how it works, so at least conceptually, the book should give you a good foundation for integrating into whatever UI framework you choose to support.
Hope that answers your question?

It looks to be a pretty in depth guide to Spring Security, which should definitely give someone the ammo to go use it in another framework if they choose.
