javaspringspring-mvcspring-security

I have been following the Spring Security Reference and i added only this classes:

@Configuration
@EnableWebMvcSecurity
public class WebSecurityConfig extends WebSecurityConfigurerAdapter {

    @Override
    protected void configure(HttpSecurity http) throws Exception {
        http
        .authorizeRequests()
            .anyRequest().authenticated()
            .and()
        .formLogin().loginPage("/login")
        .permitAll()
            .and()
        .logout()
        .permitAll();
    }

    @Autowired
    public void configureGlobal(AuthenticationManagerBuilder auth) throws Exception {
        auth
            .inMemoryAuthentication()
                .withUser("user").password("password").roles("USER").and()
                .withUser("user").password("password").roles("USER", "ADMIN");
    }
}

and

public class SecurityInitializer extends AbstractSecurityWebApplicationInitializer {


}

but when i run the server, an exception is thrown, i don't know what i am doing wrong, can you help me please?

I copied your spring security configuration and was able to reproduce the error.

Following line in the stacktrace gives the root cause of the exception:

at org.springframework.security.provisioning.InMemoryUserDetailsManager.createUser(InMemoryUserDetailsManager.java:59)

In InMemoryUserDetailsManager class, createUser() method, Spring checks if the user exists before creating an user. In your case you are adding two user with same username, hence there is an IllegalArgumentException.

I added two users with different usernames and it started working fine.
