Hello Natalie Sunny Wear,

Congratulations on your ebook (or echapter as it was addressed by Jeanne Boyarsky).

I have a few set of questions.

1. Have you intended this book on a particular version of Java EE? or in general?
2. The XSS, SQL Injection are pretty much explained everywhere. What way your book is going to differ ?
3. May be slightly off the track, have you included the issues like Double Submit Problem ? It is also one of the few prominent issues people tend to face.
4. Why only one chapter? Anything significant? any plans to increase few more chapters later?

Thanks in advance.

Hello Muthu and thanks for your questions.

Q1. Have you intended this book on a particular version of Java EE? or in general?
A1. No specific version of JEE actually, just in general.

Q2. The XSS, SQL Injection are pretty much explained everywhere. What way your book is going to differ ?
A2. In my book, I created illustrations showing the multiple tiers where the attack occurs in addition to the explanations. The
various chapters address the 5 types of attacks.

Q3. May be slightly off the track, have you included the issues like Double Submit Problem ? It is also one of the few prominent issues people tend to face.
A3. I did not include nuances of attacks, though I separate XSS into 3 separate chapters to deal with the 3 types. I would like to, eventually, write another
ebook where I can include such variations of attacks, so thank you for the idea.

Q4. Why only one chapter? Anything significant? any plans to increase few more chapters later?
A4. There are, in fact, 5 chapters in the book, each with explanations, illustrations and code examples.
