SECURING JEE WEB SERVICES (TT8500-J)

Developers who wish to develop secure applications

Prerequisite

  • Familiarity with Java and JEE is required
  • Programming experience is highly recommended
  • At least six months of Java and JEE working knowledge recommended
  • You should have a working knowledge in the following topics or attend these courses as a prerequisite:

Expected Duration
4 day

Description

In addition to teaching basic programming skills, this course examines sound processes and practices that apply to the entire software development lifecycle.

In this course, you will thoroughly examine best practices for defensively coding JEE services, including XML processing. You will repeatedly attack and then defend various assets associated with fully functional web services. This hands-on approach drives home the mechanics of how to secure JEE web services in the most practical of terms.
