I recently configured a domain object's security with Spring Security 3 and Oracle. Since I couldn't find much about that topic, I thought that I would share my solution. I assume that you are familiar with Spring and will not describe how to configure the base application.
First we need the four tables for the default JDBC implementation of Spring-Security acl.
We also need a trigger for the id of each table. You can create a trigger for each table with the following script. Don't forget to replace the red marked names for each table.
In our applicationContext we need a dataSource bean for the Oracle XE database:
After this preparation we can configure the Spring Security acl with Spring-el. I used an extra context file called "applicationContext-ACL.xml".
For an Oracle DB we need to adapt the identity queries the acl service uses like the following:
Look at my example applicationContext-ACL.xml for the other required bean configurations.
Now you can use the aclService to create acl entiries for your business objects and the Pre- and Post- Authorize or Filter annotations to protect them.
