New to Broadleaf, need info on customization

I am new to Broadleaf, I installed it locally and can run the examples, I also took a look at the docs but I still cannot decide if BL is the product that can help me in a new project.
I have to build a website where the user can access specific pages only if he/she has a paid subscription, moreover the website will have many static pages freely accessible, a section for the website will be for classic online shopping, this is why I was looking at this interesting product.

My question is this, how much it will be difficult, if possible, to integrate the solution for the paid subscriptions (that I still have to build) with the static content (many pages) and the shopping module?

Thanks in advance.

This is easy, but will require some Java and Spring security knowledge. You can refer to Spring's documentation online for specifics and you can look at *-security-applicationContext.xml files in the demo for examples of how protect certain pages in the site. I'm assuming your paid subscribers will be logging in to access these pages.
