Error: attribute property is mandatory for tag authentication

Bug: The exception thrown when migrating to spring 3.

Reason:  This exception thrown when migrating to spring-security 3 occurs due to spring 3 (authentication tag) using the attribute “properties” in place of “operation” used by previous versions.

Solution : Use <sec:authentication property=”principal.role”/> instead of <sec:authentication operation=”role”/>
