I need to use spring security only for authorization. I am creating an object of Authentication & setting it to context:

After which - i am able to fetch same to various jsp pages in the application. Below is my security context file content - which is quite basic:

which gives compile error as:

cvc-complex-type.2.4.a: Invalid content was found starting with element 'global-method-security'. One of '{"http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans":description, "http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans":import, "http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans":alias, "http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans":bean, WC[##other:"http://www.springframework.org/ schema/beans"]}' is expected.

if I use append security tag in above (i.e. <security:global-method-security pre-post-annotations="enabled" /> ) I get runtime error as :

org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: cvc-complex-type.2.4.c: The matching wildcard is strict, but no declaration can be found for element 'security:global-method-security'.

Am stuck here - what I am doing wrong!
I just need to secure methods - something like:

@PreAuthorize("hasRole('ROLE_SPITTER')")
or
@Secured( {"ROLE-ADMIN"} )

Thanks for your help.

You have to use



with the "security" before because the root namespace is not security. the error you are getting is generally because there's something missing. in my case, I was having the same error when in xsi:schemaLocation I had not included the following:


 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
