The AspectJ joinpoints are not supported by the default expression based method security implementation org.springframework.security.access.prepost.PreInvocationAuthorizationAdviceVoter. The PreInvocationAuthirzationAdviceVoter is currently hardwired to deal with MethodInvocation (Spring AOP) specifically and there are no equivalents (as far as I saw) that deals with AspectJ Joinpoints. Since Spring AOP based approach does not intercetp local method calls , important security access expressions could be skipped and having AspectJ JointPoint support would be really useful.
Currently we have a customized version of PreInvocationAuthorizationAdviceVoter that wraps the JoinPoint as as MethodInvocation and works fine, but a framework support would be ideal.

This should now work. I've created a new AspectJ interceptor which extends MethodSecurityInterceptor and uses an adapter which exposes the JoinPont as a MethodInvocation, not just to the voters, but to all the method-security infrastructure classes. I've also added support for Pre/Post annotations to the AnnotationSecurityAspect and changed it to use this interceptor.

Note that the previous AspectJ interceptor classes are now deprecated as of 3.0.3.

@spring-issuemaster spring-issuemaster added this to the 3.1.0.M1 milestone Feb 5, 2016
