spring-security-web-app

You can find the original documentation at Ferdi Sonmezay Website

Section One: Creating a web application

Here is the source code of the project. You can download or clone from github

$ git clone https://github.com/fsonmezay/spring-security-web-app.git

In this tutorial, I am going to create a sample java web application using:

I will create project structure with Apache Maven (version 3.2.3), so please make sure that maven is installed before you start.

Creating a Java Project With Maven

Navigate to the folder you want to create the project and in Command Line, type:

$ mvn archetype:generate -DgroupId=com.ferdisonmezay -DartifactId=springsecuritywebapp -DarchetypeArtifactId=maven-archetype-quickstart -DinteractiveMode=false

This command will create springsecuritywebapp directory in your file system. When you navigate to the folder, you'll see that there's a directory called src and a file called pom.xml. the content of the 'pom.xml' file looks like this:

<project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
  xsi:schemaLocation="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0 http://maven.apache.org/maven-v4_0_0.xsd">
  <modelVersion>4.0.0</modelVersion>
  <groupId>com.ferdisonmezay</groupId>
  <artifactId>springsecuritywebapp</artifactId>
  <packaging>jar</packaging>
  <version>1.0-SNAPSHOT</version>
  <name>springsecuritywebapp</name>
  <url>http://maven.apache.org</url>
  <dependencies>

      <artifactId>junit</artifactId>
      <version>3.8.1</version>
      <scope>test</scope>
    </dependency>
  </dependencies>
</project>

First we will add some personal staff, properties and build parameters to pom.xml. So, open the file in your favorite editor, and add these lines after <name></name> tag

</build>

Then, we need to add some dependencies to pom.xml file. between <dependencies> ... </dependencies> tags:

Converting to a web project

The project was generated as a Java Application, so we need to convert it to a web application. For the conversion, we need to create a webapp directory in the /src/main folder.

Now, navigate to the webapp folder and create two folders in webapp folder.

  • web_resource
  • WEB-INF

We will keep our web resource files like images, js files, css files in web_resource folder, and web pages and web configurations in WEB-INF folder.

To make spring configuration we will need an application context configuration file, so create applicationContext.xml file in WEB-INF folder, and add these lines to the file.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<beans xmlns="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans"
	xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
	xmlns:p="http://www.springframework.org/schema/p"
	xmlns:context="http://www.springframework.org/schema/context"
	xmlns:mvc="http://www.springframework.org/schema/mvc"
	xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans
 						http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans/spring-beans-3.0.xsd
 						http://www.springframework.org/schema/context
 						http://www.springframework.org/schema/context/spring-context-3.0.xsd
 						http://www.springframework.org/schema/mvc
 						http://www.springframework.org/schema/mvc/spring-mvc.xsd">

	<mvc:annotation-driven />
	<context:component-scan base-package="com.ferdisonmezay.springsecuritywebapp" />
	<mvc:resources mapping="/webapp/web_resource/**" location="/web_resource/" />
	<mvc:default-servlet-handler/>
	<bean
		class="org.springframework.web.servlet.view.InternalResourceViewResolver"
		p:prefix="/WEB-INF/pages/" p:suffix=".jsp" />
</beans>

Now, create a file called web.xmlin the folder WEB-INF. Open the file and add these lines to the web.xml file.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<web-app xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee"
		 xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
		 xsi:schemaLocation="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee
 							 http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee/web-app_2_5.xsd"
		 version="2.5">

	<servlet-mapping>

	    <init-param>  
	       <param-name>encoding</param-name>  
	       <param-value>UTF-8</param-value>  
	    </init-param>  
	    <init-param>  
	       <param-name>forceEncoding</param-name>  
	       <param-value>true</param-value>  
	    </init-param>  
	</filter>  

	<listener>
		<listener-class>org.springframework.web.context.ContextLoaderListener</listener-class>
	</listener>
</web-app>

Our project structure should look like

.
src
|__main
|__|__java
|__|__|__com
|__|__|___ferdisonmezay
|__|__|___|__App.java
|__|__webapp
|__|__|__WEB-INF
|__|__|__|__applicationContext.xml
|__|__|__|__web.xml
|__|__|__web_resource
|__test
|__|__java
|__|__|__com
|__|__|__|__ferdisonmezay
|__|__|__|__|__AppTest.java
pom.xml

Now, if you run mvn jetty:run on command line, and open localhost:8080 on your browser, you should be able to see an error 404 page, containing a link to the application.

Making the Website work

Now we need a working website. So first we will add some resource files, to web_resource directory. you can add any *.css or *.js files to web_resources directory.

I have created css, js, images directories in web_resources directory and, copied bootstrap.min.css file to css directory and bootstrap.min.js and jQuery.js files to js directory. I also copied some images that I will use for this project to images directory.

NOTE : You can download Twitter Bootstrap, and jQuery from these links

Now we need to create an html file to display the web content. Create pages directory in WEB-INF folder and place an html file (index.html) in pages folder.

index.html (Remember that we will use taglib for future operations.)

<%@ taglib prefix="spring" uri="http://www.springframework.org/tags"%>
<%@ taglib prefix="c" uri="http://java.sun.com/jsp/jstl/core"%>
<%@ taglib prefix="sec" uri="http://www.springframework.org/security/tags" %>
<%@ page contentType="text/html;charset=UTF-8" pageEncoding="UTF-8" %>
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<meta charset="UTF-8">
<title>Spring Security Web App</title>
<link rel="stylesheet"
	href="${pageContext.request.contextPath}/web_resource/css/bootstrap.min.css">
</head>
<body>
  <nav class="navbar navbar-default navbar-fixed-top">
    <div class="container">
      <div>
        <div style="float: left; width: 60px;">
          <img style="width: 40px; margin-top: 4px;" alt="Ferdi Sonmezay | Spring Security Web App" src="${pageContext.request.contextPath}/web_resource/images/logo.png">
        </div>
        <div class="navbar-header">
          <button type="button" class="navbar-toggle" data-toggle="collapse" data-target=".navbar-collapse">
            <span class="sr-only">Toggle navigation</span>
            <span class="icon-bar"></span>
            <span class="icon-bar"></span>
            <span class="icon-bar"></span>
          </button>
          <a class="navbar-brand" href="./"> | Spring Security Web App</a>
        </div>
      </div>
      <div class="collapse navbar-collapse pull-right">
        <ul class="nav navbar-nav">
          <li class="active"><a href="./"><span class="glyphicon glyphicon-home"></span> Home</a></li>
          <li><a href="${pageContext.request.contextPath}/books">Books</a></li>
          <li><a href="<c:url value="/j_spring_security_logout" />">Logout</a></li>
        </ul>
      </div>
    </div>
  </nav>

  <div class="container" style="margin-top: 90px;">
    <div class="jumbotron">
      <h1>Spring Bootstrap App</h1>
      <p class="lead">Spring Maven Hibernate Bootstrap template application</p>
    </div>
  </div>

  <script src="${pageContext.request.contextPath}/web_resource/js/jquery.min.js"></script>
	<script src="${pageContext.request.contextPath}/web_resource/js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>
</body>
</html>

Now we have to create a controller, to handle web requests. First create a package called com.ferdisonmezay.springsecuritywebapp.controller, and then create a file called MainController.java

// MainController.java
package com.ferdisonmezay.springsecuritywebapp.controller;

import org.springframework.stereotype.Controller;
import org.springframework.ui.Model;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.RequestMapping;

@Controller
public class MainController {

	@RequestMapping(value = "/*")
	public String mainController(Model model) {
		return "index";
	}

}

Now, if you run

$ mvn jetty:run

on terminal, and open http://localhost:8080/springsecuritywebapp/ in your browser, you can see sample web application.



Section Two: Adding Spring Security

First, we have to create a spring-security configuration file in WEB-INF directory.

spring-security.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<beans:beans xmlns="http://www.springframework.org/schema/security"
  xmlns:beans="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
  xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans
        http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans/spring-beans-3.2.xsd
        http://www.springframework.org/schema/security
        http://www.springframework.org/schema/security/spring-security-3.2.xsd">

  <http auto-config="true" access-denied-page="/accessdenied">
    <intercept-url pattern="/login" access="ROLE_ANONYMOUS"/>
    <intercept-url pattern="/loginfailed" access="ROLE_ANONYMOUS"/>
    <intercept-url pattern="/books" access="ROLE_USER,ROLE_SUPER_USER"/>
    <intercept-url pattern="/*" access="ROLE_USER, ROLE_SUPER_USER" />
    <intercept-url pattern="/admin/*" access="ROLE_SUPER_USER" />
    <form-login login-page="/login" default-target-url="/success" authentication-failure-url="/loginfailed" />
    <logout logout-success-url="/logout" />
  </http>

  <authentication-manager>
    <authentication-provider>
      <password-encoder hash="md5" />
      <user-service>
        <!-- user: sudo , password: su -->
        <user name="sudo"
              password="0b180078d994cb2b5ed89d7ce8e7eea2"
              authorities="ROLE_SUPER_USER, ROLE_USER" />

        <!-- user: webuser , password: user1 -->
        <user name="webuser"
              password="24c9e15e52afc47c225b757e7bee1f9d"
              authorities="ROLE_USER" />
      </user-service>
    </authentication-provider>
  </authentication-manager>

  <beans:bean id="webexpressionHandler" class="org.springframework.security.web.access.expression.DefaultWebSecurityExpressionHandler" />

</beans:beans>

Then we must create login.jsp, logout.jsp pages. We also have to modify our MainController.java file to handle spring security requests.

First create a login directory, in the pages directory. and add a jsp file login.jsp in login directory. The content of login.jsp should be as follows:

<%@ taglib prefix="c" uri="http://java.sun.com/jsp/jstl/core"%>
<%@ taglib prefix="fmt" uri="http://java.sun.com/jsp/jstl/fmt"%>
<%@ taglib prefix="spring" uri="http://www.springframework.org/tags"%>
<%@ taglib prefix="form" uri="http://www.springframework.org/tags/form"%>
<%@ page contentType="text/html;charset=UTF-8" pageEncoding="UTF-8" %>

            <div class="col-md-6">

                  <input id="login-password" required="true" type="password" class="form-control" name="j_password" placeholder="Password">
                </div>
                <div style="margin-top: 10px" class="form-group">

                      Login
                    </button>
                  </div>
                </div>
              </form>
            </div>
          </div>
        </div>
      </div>

  <script src="${pageContext.request.contextPath}/web_resource/js/jquery.min.js"></script>
  <script src="${pageContext.request.contextPath}/web_resource/js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>
</body>
</html>

Now we have to add spring-security configurations to web.xml file.

<context-param>
  <param-name>contextConfigLocation</param-name>
  <param-value>
    /WEB-INF/spring-security.xml
  </param-value>
</context-param>

<filter>
  <filter-name>springSecurityFilterChain</filter-name>
  <filter-class>org.springframework.web.filter.DelegatingFilterProxy</filter-class>
</filter>

<filter-mapping>
  <filter-name>springSecurityFilterChain</filter-name>
  <url-pattern>/*</url-pattern>
</filter-mapping>

Then, we need to add spring security request handlers to MainController.java file.

@RequestMapping(value = "/login", method = RequestMethod.GET)
public String login(ModelMap model) {
  return "login/login";
}

@RequestMapping(value = "/loginfailed", method = RequestMethod.GET)
public String loginerror(ModelMap model) {
  model.addAttribute("error", "true");
  return "login/login";
}

@RequestMapping(value = "/logout", method = RequestMethod.GET)
public String logout(ModelMap model) {
  return "index";
}
