Hi elliotte,

Yesterday I read a book that handled insecure code, and proxies for requests and responses of your browser. In what way would your book be helpfull to write a proxy to see all incoming and outgoing messages and headers ?

thanks,
friso

It depends on what kind of proxy server you want to write. If you're writing a sockets level, SOCKS proxy server you could implement that on top of Socket and ServerSocket. That's chapter 9 and 10. Chapter 2 would also be helpful for understanding just what proxy servers and network application do. If you just want an HTTP proxy server, you'd still end up using Socket and ServerSocket, However, you'd also want to read chapter 3, 7, and 15 to get a better understanding of what goes on under the hood of typical web browsers and servers.
