In this article by Jose Sandoval, we will move into the world of design for fully complaint RESTul web services. We usually talk about creating web services that are noun dependent as opposed to verb dependent. In this article we will look at what that means in terms of the design process by designing a blogging application.Read RESTful Java Web Services Design in full
In this article by Jose Argudo Blanco and David Upton, we will see how CodeIgniter actually works, "under the hood". This article introduces a bit on object-oriented programming and how CodeIgniter makes use of it, including the use of the CI super object, and how we can modify and use. Here, we will also understand why things happen in certain ways, as opposed to just knowing that they do.Read CodeIgniter 1.7 and Objects in full
In this article by Jose Sandoval, we implement the web service requirements we outlined in the previous article on RESTful Web Services Design, with the RESTEasy framework. RESTEasy is not only a RESTful framework, but is also JBoss's umbrella project that provides other frameworks to build RESTful web services. As part of the REST facilities, RESTEasy fully implements the JAX-RS specification. Subsequently, we only look at how we use RESTEasy to implement RESTful web services. At the time of this writing, the released version is 1.1GA.Read RESTful Web Service Implementation with RESTEasy in full
This article by M.L.Srinivasan, covers concepts related to vulnerability assessment and penetration testing.
In this article, we'll focus on IT vulnerabilities, the impact due to compromise, and the overall cycle of vulnerability and penetration tests. We'll also discuss some of the emerging standards in terms of vulnerability naming systems such as Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE), which is a dictionary for vulnerability names; and Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS), as defined by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).Read CISSP: Vulnerability and Penetration Testing for Access Control in full
