  2. Congrats[ Go to top ]

    Congrats, Ben et al! I found Acegi a very useful, for example to implement rememberme and the like. Also, the doco is quite good.

  3. I had a look at Acegi Security to enhance my application. The main thing I found missing is the notion of a Group, like the java.security.acl.Group. Is this likely to appear in the final release or is there some fundamental reason why this is not implemented?
  4. Roles[ Go to top ]

    I've found that the easiest way to support groups using Acegi is to associated them with roles in your AuthenticationDao implementation.

    You might want to take a look at section 1.2 in the docs:

    Acegi uses the "Principal"(ala JAAS) concept instead of groups/roles. A little different nomenclature but the ideas are the similar.
