Is it possible to use AuthenticationManager for password validation?
I have a WS developed using SpringPlainTextPasswordValidationCallbackHandler, which allowed me to use an AuthenticationManager and thus store the hash of the password in the DB.
However, this class has been removed since version 2.1.0, and "replaced" by SpringSecurityPasswordValidationCallbackHandler, which doesn't allow the use of an AuthenticationManager.
I'd like to upgrade my Spring WS version to the latest one (currently, 2.1.2), but I need to keep this feature. Do you know how could I do that, or am I stuck with version 2.0.5?
