Subject RE: Getting the authenticated user from Spring Security for use in an Action
Date Tue, 16 Mar 2010 21:42:41 GMT
I have Spring Security set up to use CasAutheticationProvider to provide a
UserDetails object. 

I did find an example that uses the SecurityContext to obtain an
Authentication object and grab the UserDetails from there. I am not sure how
to get access to the populated SecurityContext since
SecurityContextHolder.getContext() is returning an empty SecurityContext and
I am not sure if that is the best way to access the user.

What mechanism are you using to handle authentication/authorization?
