Information Security Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for Information security professionals. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I got asked this question:

"Any decent reusable / plug-able Spring user management systems (registration, change pwd, reset etc)?

How do you guys do authz in Spring, including managing those roles in ui?"

My first thought was http://static.springsource.org/spring-security/site/ but I haven't used it in a while and am not sure if it is easy to implement and deploy.

Any good recommendations?

I use spring security and I don't find it too difficult to implement it into spring based application.

I use Spring Security extensively, but it's intended to solve a different set of problems than the ones you cited: registration, change-password, reset. You'll still need to handle all that yourself. Spring Security is a very effective tool for handling authentication, authorization, and access-control.
