***Institutionalization of Usability: A Step-by-Step Guide
Eric Schaffer
Institutionalization of Usability shows how to make
user-centered design and development a routine practice
within an enterprise. Other excellent books explain
precisely how to make software usable; this book builds on
that foundation, and focuses instead on how to get usability
recognized and incorporated into an organization's values
and culture. Based on author Eric Schaffer's extensive
experience, the book provides a solid methodology for
institutionalizing usability, guiding readers step by step
with practical advice on topics like organizational change,
milestones, toolsets, infrastructure, and staffing
requirements needed to achieve fully mature usability

***Exploiting Software: How to Break Code
Greg Hoglund, Gary McGraw
How does software break? How do attackers make software
break on purpose? Why are firewalls, intrusion detection
systems, and antivirus software not keeping out the bad
guys? What tools can be used to break software? This book
provides the answers. Exploiting Software is loaded with
examples of real attacks, attack patterns, tools, and
techniques used by bad guys to break software. If you want
to protect your software from attack, you must first learn
how real attacks are really carried out. This must-have book
may shock you--and it will certainly educate you.

***Enterprise Java Security: Building Secure J2EE
Marco Pistoia, Nataraj Nagaratnam, Larry Koved, Anthony
Enterprise Java Security: Building Secure J2EE Applications
provides application developers and programmers with the
know-how they need to utilize the latest Java security
technologies in building secure enterprise infrastructures.
Written by the leading Java security experts at IBM, this
comprehensive guide covers the current status of the Java 2
Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE), and Java 2 Platform,
Standard Edition (J2SE), security architectures and offers
practical solutions and usage patterns to address the

***Real Time UML, Third Edition: Advances in The UML for
Real-Time Systems
Bruce Powel Douglass
Like its best-selling predecessors, Real Time UML, Third
Edition, provides an overview of the essentials of real-time
systems and an introduction to UML that focuses on the use
of the ever-evolving standard in design and development.
This accessible book examines requirements analysis, the
definition of object structure and behavior, architectural
and mechanistic design, and more detailed designs that
encompass data structure, operations, and exceptions.
Numerous figures help illustrate UML design techniques, and
detailed, real-world examples show the application of those
techniques to embedded systems.

***The JFC Swing Tutorial, Second Edition: A Guide to
Constructing GUIs
Kathy Walrath, Mary Campione, Alison Huml, Sharon Zakhour
The JFC Swing Tutorial is back, fully revised and updated to
include the latest revisions to the JFC Swing API and the
Java 2 platform. In this book, authors and Java experts
Kathy Walrath, Mary Campione, Alison Huml, and Sharon
Zakhour-working closely with the Sun Microsystems Swing
team-explore the ins and outs of creating GUIs with Swing
components. This task-oriented, example-driven tutorial
allows you to create user interfaces that work without
change on multiple platforms, appearing and performing as
well as or better than native interfaces.
