Required help to understand spring security.
I am very new to spring security.
I read spring security documentation. I now that somehow "springSecurityFilterChain" bean gets created from security:http configuration that is mapped to filter configured in web.xml
I have following queries -
1) How "springSecurityFilterChain" bean gets created from security:http.
2) Which default filters are configured.
Thanks in advance.

Okay then there isn't any better way to find out whats happening inside than reading the source code.
You will find your answers in org.springframework.security.config.http.HttpSecur ityBeanDefinitionParser
