I want to help any way I can, but I don't know much about Spring or Spring authentication. Can you try my suggestion in the other thread and report back?
If there is anything I can do to help please let me know.
The authentication works fine now, but am seeing issues while trying to access the managed bean which is configured using spring.
Another issues i am seeing is when i try to click the button on the navigated page, I am not seeing the page being submitted, may be i will post that in other thread
I there any way you could send me a simple test app (preferably as a Maven project)? I'd like to have something to test Spring with and then put out fixes for the next release.
If Spring is using its own scope then I might need to add special logic to access that scope. This is what I had to do for Seam. If your managed bean is in a regular scope like session scope or request scope then it should work fine. Please post details.
