Hi Shawn,

I'm using fortress live at my production level, i did combine it with cas,
spring security and fortress to make a request filter for our internal
I willing to help this project to spread, so other developer life also
getting more easier in term of the securing their apps.

However, I'm not a good documentation writer but i want to contribute back
to the community because this project help us to saving development time
and become a good example for me.
here is my previous idea (if you still remember),

Please let me know what kind of story that you need and what file format
that you want to have.
