Spring security is distributed as osgi ready but unfortunately it contains split packages which could cause problems in OSGI environments.

Examples of split packages can be found in spring-security-acl and spring-security-core:
- org.springframework.security.afterinvocation
- org.springframework.security.vote

For more info on split packages see:
- http://www.osgi.org/blog/2006/04/misconceptions-about-osgi-headers.html
- http://code9.com/2008/08/22/tip-split-packages-and-visibility/

Last link provides Chris Aniszczyk article explaining how eclipse does it.

I suggest complete removal of split packages in next major release.
