  • Enterprise Java Security: Building Secure J2EE Applications - A thorough look at the security features provided by Java and J2EE. Not much coverage specifically for web application security, no mention of Cross Site Scripting or Response Splitting attacks. No coverage of common frameworks such as Spring, Hibernate or EJB3. - Stephendv 03:42, 1 September 2006 (EDT)
  • J2EE Security - Covers the security features offered by Java and J2EE. Similar to other books on the subject, it makes the assumption that security=access control. Not a lot of coverage for preventing common web attacks such as XSS. - Stephendv 03:42, 1 September 2006 (EDT)
  • Java Security - "... covers Java's security mechanisms and teaches you how to work with them. It discusses class loaders, security managers, access lists, digital signatures, and authentication and shows how to use these to create and enforce your own security policy. "
  • Covert Java: Techniques for Decompiling, Patching, and Reverse Engineering - "These techniques will show you how to better understand and work with third-party applications. Each chapter focuses on a technique to solve a specific problem, such as obfuscation in code or scalability vulnerabilities, outlining the issue and demonstrating possible solutions. "
