Well, starting by setting up my own project (Maven-based) with all updated dependencies (GWT 2.0.3 etc) and started reading the Spring Security Reference Documentation (puh!). Instead of See Wah Cheng's approach of implementing a custom authentication service, I decided to rely on standard namespace configuration

Introducing Technowobble!

Technowobble is my place to post interesting stuff related to technology in general. Right now I'm spending time looking into Spring integration with Google Web Toolkit (GWT) in combination with Google App Engine (GAE) and fibbling with my brand new Mac Mini - which is hooked up to my Samsung flatscreen and only accessed through my Iphone (no keyboard, no mouse!). Another thing catching my tech-attention right now is Spring Roo - I wonder what will be? Happy reading!
