Starting with Spring MVC 2.5, Annotation-Based Controllers became the preferred model for development (the Interface-based Controller hierarchy will be deprecated in Spring 3). This session will teach developers familiar with the old model how to use the new Annotation-based Controllers. This will also provide the basis for writing JSR 286 portlets using Spring 3.

Introducing Spring Security
Ben Alex, SpringSource, Australia
Spring Security is a popular, open-source Java security framework that represents the Spring
portfolio's official security capability. It has received hundreds of thousands of downloads, been
ported to other platforms (such as Python and Microsoft .NET) and represents a popular choice in
many banking, government, and military installations.
This session presents practical solutions for addressing today’s complex enterprise application
security requirements using Spring Security. It takes attendees on a step-by-step journey that begins
with the simple security requirement of a login form, and grows to include more advanced
requirements such as web request authorization, single sign on and federated identity (OpenID),
advanced method authorization, plus rich client security considerations.
Ben's security sessions are always intensely demonstration-oriented, and this session promises at
least five separate live demonstrations and code discussions. As such, you will not only discover the
important architectural concepts and standards applicable to enterprise application security, but
you'll also receive plenty of practical tips and solid advice on using this powerful and flexible
