Book Review: Ajax Security by Billy Hoffman

Category: Ajax, Book Reviews, Security

<>p>Brian Dillard of Agile Ajax has a review of Billy Hoffman’s new book “Ajax Security“. If you’ve not picked this book up, you really need to. It’s received rave reviews and is quickly becoming the must-have security book for client-side development. As Brian can attest:

The book itself, of course, documents dozens more specific security vulnerabilities – as well as best practices for protecting your application against them. I said it before, and I’ll say it again: “Ajax Security” is required reading for any professional software engineer.

Be sure to read Brian’s review and be sure to get the book.

I’m in the process of reading the book and it’s making me think in ways that I have not before as a developer. However I do have one issue… I put the book on my Safari bookshelf so I could read up on DWR security since that’s the tech that I’m focusing on at the moment and there was an error when describing the short comings of the framework. It stated that one has to expose a whole java class via DWR. This statement is false. One can use either or for each method inside the declaration for exposing a class to the DWR servlet.

it eats tags… the last line should read…

One can use either “include” or “exclude” for each method inside the declaration for exposing a class to the DWR servlet.
