Introducing CAS authentication
I adapted my web application to Spring and now I have the following doubt. The application used CAS for authentication. Configuring a CAS client without Spring is so easy, because it implies introducing some lines in web.xml. However, with my spring application this doesnt work.
I do not have any experience with Spring, so my question is if it is neccesary to introduce Spring Security in my application and then specifically for CAS, and if there is any good guide for this work.
thank you so much!!!

A sample application is available at https://github.com/SpringSource/spri...er/samples/cas.

Personal opinion is that if the only reason you're looking at spring security is to interface with CAS - I wouldn't go down that path. But spring security has many other features that are commonly required for web development.
