Spring Social Grails
I am not sure, whether this is the right forum to discuss about Grails plugin. Let me know if you want me to move this discussion to another forum.
We are developing a Grails App and want to have authenticating done using OAuth2. I see that even in grails there is no spring-social-security plugin(official released one I mean).
I see that there is a separate spring-security-core and spring-social-core plugin. What would be the general recommendation in this scenario? Just use Spring security with OAuth2 support? Is there any way I can get best of both plugins.
Please let me know if there is already spring-security-social plugin exists which I am unaware of.
Thanks for you help.
First, this forum seems certainly like the appropriate place to discuss anything Spring Social, even the Spring Social Grails plugin. That said, Spring Social Grails is developed by a community member and as such I don't know much about it (played with it once or twice, but am far from an expert on the topic) and I don't know if there's anyone on this forum who knows about it.
In general (Grails or not), there is a plan to integrate Spring Social and Spring Security closer together and there has been a handful of community-led attempts to do that. In short, it's on the roadmap, but we've not yet begun to go down that road. Now, how that would play into a Grails app, I cannot say. If anyone is interested in helping move the Grails/Spring Social/Spring Security story further along, I'm eager to see it and will help out as much as I can.
But back to your original question: Is anyone else on this forum aware of a spring-security-social plugin for Grails?
