I am trying to integrate Hazelcast in spring security. Configured SpringAwareWebFilter instead of WebFilter. I used to have the following configuration in applicationContext.xml

<bean id="hazelcastWebFilter" class="com.hazelcast.web.WebFilter">
                <prop key="map-name">sessions</prop>
                <prop key="sticky-session">true</prop>
                <prop key="test1">${app.cookie}</prop>
                <prop key="test2">${app.secure}</prop>

but now, with springAwareWebFilter, the only way I can specify the properties is using the init-param.

I would like to keep the properties separate from the web.xml? Can you let me know how can i set the properties outside web.xml?

@mpusarla you are right.
SpringAwareWebFilter should have a constructor which takes properties as argument like this:

public class SpringAwareWebFilter extends WebFilter {


    public SpringAwareWebFilter(Properties properties) {


I will add this to SpringAwareWebFilter then you can use SpringAwareWebFilter as WebFilter by constructor argument in applicationContext.xml.

Thanks for reporting this one.
