= Spring Security

Spring Security provides security services for the https://docs.spring.io[Spring IO Platform]. Spring Security 6.0 requires Spring 6.0 as a minimum and also requires Java 17.

For a detailed list of features and access to the latest release, please visit https://spring.io/projects[Spring projects].

== Code of Conduct Please see our https://github.com/spring-projects/.github/blob/main/CODE_OF_CONDUCT.md[code of conduct]

== Downloading Artifacts See https://docs.spring.io/spring-security/reference/getting-spring-security.html[Getting Spring Security] for how to obtain Spring Security.

== Documentation Be sure to read the https://docs.spring.io/spring-security/site/docs/current/reference/htmlsingle/[Spring Security Reference]. Extensive JavaDoc for the Spring Security code is also available in the https://docs.spring.io/spring-security/site/docs/current/api/[Spring Security API Documentation].

== Quick Start See https://docs.spring.io/spring-security/reference/servlet/getting-started.html[Hello Spring Security] to get started with a "Hello, World" application.

== Building from Source Spring Security uses a https://gradle.org[Gradle]-based build system. In the instructions below, https://vimeo.com/34436402[`./gradlew`] is invoked from the root of the source tree and serves as a cross-platform, self-contained bootstrap mechanism for the build.

=== Prerequisites https://docs.github.com/en/get-started/quickstart/set-up-git[Git] and the https://www.oracle.com/java/technologies/downloads/#java17[JDK17 build].

Be sure that your JAVA_HOME environment variable points to the jdk-17 folder extracted from the JDK download.

=== Check out sources [indent=0]

git clone git@github.com:spring-projects/spring-security.git

=== Install all spring-*.jar into your local Maven repository.

[indent=0]

./gradlew publishToMavenLocal

=== Compile and test; build all JARs, distribution zips, and docs

[indent=0]

./gradlew build

The reference docs are not currently included in the distribution zip. You can build the reference docs for this branch by running the following command:


./gradlew :spring-security-docs:antora

That command publishes the docs site to the _docs/build/site_ directory. The https://github.com/spring-projects/spring-security/tree/docs-build[playbook branch] describes how to build the reference docs in detail.

Discover more commands with ./gradlew tasks.

== Getting Support Check out the https://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/spring-security[Spring Security tags on Stack Overflow]. https://spring.io/support[Commercial support] is available too.
