What type of security features are provided in Spring ?

a) Is there support for roles and principals ?
b) If I want to restrict a component in that it can be used by a certain role (eg, only Managers), how is this achieved in Spring ?

Spring supports a variety of security features (authentication using a number of methods and authorization using a number of methods) through Acegi Security System for Spring. I haven't used Acegi myself but I do know it supports role-based authorization with all sorts of voting schemes and authentication using a variety of methods from LDAP to JDBC to SSO and so forth.

I'd suggest browsing the Acegi documentation (or buying a Spring book;) for more details.
