Need to provide security to an url(eg:http://localhost:8080/webapplication1/index.jsp) in springs project(url is not a part of springs project).

In security-context.xml

<security:intercept-url pattern="http://localhost:8080/webapplication1/index.jsp"
access="ROLE_READ,ROLE_READWRITE,ROLE_NOACCESS" /> ============ security is not provided(url belongs to other project)

<security:intercept-url pattern="/login.jsp"
access="ROLE_READ,ROLE_READWRITE,ROLE_NOACCESS" /> ============ security is provided(login.jsp is part of springs project)

new to springs can someone help to solve this

I'm not as familiar with Spring Security as I should be, but I don't think Spring is what you need for defending URLs.

Spring Security can be paired with J2EE standard container security, however, and container security does protect URLs, using patterns and rules that you define in WEB-INF/web.xml.

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
