I'm fairly new to Tomcat having only developed a couple small web apps using version 4. In addition, I only ran these apps locally. It was really just to get me familiar with the process. In the future, however, I'm looking at developing a web app for a local nonprofit. I'm considering using Tomcat, but what to make sure I set up a secure app.

Does Pro Jakarta Tomcat 5 cover security issues?

Thank you,
Kailey Smith

Hi Kailey,

Does Pro Jakarta Tomcat 5 cover security issues?


The book covers security from the admin's perspective. This includes authentication and authorisation, SSL with Apache, Java's security manager, user management and file system security.

Writing inherently secure web applications is not covered in the book as that is the developer's role and not the admin's.

I found two chapters in Table of Contents about security issues.
