As a registered member of SearchAppSecurity.com, you're entitled to a complimentary copy of Chapter 7 of Ajax in Action written by David Crane, Eric Pascarello and Darren James and published by Manning Publications. "Security and Ajax
" looks at the issue of security in Ajax from a number of angles. Ajax is a Web technology and many of the issues that it faces are no different from any other Web app.
Ajax in Action helps you implement that thinking--it explains how to distribute the application between the client and the server while retaining the integrity of the system. You will learn how to ensure your app is flexible and maintainable, and how good, structured design can help avoid problems like browser incompatibilities. Along the way it helps you unlearn many old coding habits. Above all, it opens your mind to the many advantages gained by placing much of the processing in the browser. If you are a Web developer who has prior experience with Web technologies, this book is for you.
