acegilogin.jsp through Spring controllers?
One of my design objectives is to hide my view technology from the user, so I am interested in routing the login through my controllers.
In my simple experiment, I placed the contents of acegilogin.jsp into my protected WEB-INF/jsp directory and provided handling through the signin.htm URI. In addition, I updated the applicationContext.xml so that it referred to this URI instead of acegilogin.jsp. I left the other configuration the same.
The result of this experiment was that I was able to get my sign in page, but every submission ended in a credentials error. I'm not completely sure why this didn't work. I was wondering if somehow the filters are not getting the opportunity to perform the security check.
If there is a way to get the desired behavior, I would appreciate it.
