Application not secured with Spring Security
In the documentation it says something like:
The Spring Security SAML Extension can be used in applications which are not primarily secured using Spring Security.
The application I want to modify uses spring, but is not secured using spring security. I don't have much experience with spring security and am wondering if there is any advantage in reworking the application to use spring security, before introducing the SAML Extension.
Thanks in advance.

Reworking your Spring application to use Spring Security won't make SAML integration significantly easier or more difficult (typically, it also depends on how the current security is done). So the decision should be based on your answer to question "does Spring Security provide additional functionality or design improvements justifying the investment".
