Enabling Spring Security Expression-based Access Control for methods in a Spring Roo app

Expression-based Access Control allows you to annotate specific methods with access rules. To enable, add the following element to your webmvc-config.xml file for your Roo webapp (not the security context file, it must be in the context file for the web app):

<security:global-method-security pre-post-annotations="enabled"/>

The explanation for why this needs to be in your webapp context is covered here.
