I am looking at an example of Spring Security ACLs. The project uses the following file to configure ACL, my question is on the second and third beans (id = adminRole, and lookupStrategy):

The adminRole bean is created with the constructor argument of "admin". The project description indicates this is a special authority that sits outside the ACLs determining who can change the ACLs. It states that a system-wide administrative authority should be used which is what is being passed in here by "admin". Is the value "admin" recognized by Spring security (I could not find it in the Spring Security code or documentation)? The project has ROLE_ADMIN defined in its database tables, but I don't see anything mapping this value of "admin" to ROLE_ADMIN in the database. Thanks in advance.

Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
