More About the Author

I have a software engineering degree, soon to be M.Sc. in Information Systems, and have been working on software development projects since 1998. I have experience with a variety of technologies (C++, J2EE, CORBA, and COM+) on diverse platforms (Solaris, Linux, and Windows) and enjoy dealing with software architecture and design, server-side development, high throughput and large scale software systems.

Some of the works that I enjoyed in the past includes but not limited to the following:

Working on multiple loosely coupled architecture for high throughput message based systems with JMS at heart and rest of the components forming the stops around the JMS as the main messaging bus.

Security integration is another area that I worked on, specifically in integration OpenSSO with a solid SOA framework used for developing BPEL flow oriented software systems.

Performance analysis and performance consulting, at architecture, design, code and deployment configuration is another challenge I enjoyed dealing with in some of my consulting projects.

Restful services and use of Restful endpoints for data integration was one of the other practices I went through for data integration between industry leading software systems: IJC and TIBCO Spotfire during my work at ChemAxon.

I have some writings here and there most notably two books: "GlassFish and Java EE security" published in 2010 and "Developing RESTful Services with JAX-RS 2.0, WebSockets, and JSON" published in 2013. In addition to the books my writings includes several articles at Java.net and Dzone as well as multiple Refcardz, published by Dzone, including but not limited to Using XML in Java, Java EE Security and GlassFish v3 Refcardz.

My main area of research and interest includes service-oriented architecture and large scale systems' development and deployment. In my spare time I enjoy photography, mountaineering and climbing.

Format: Paperback
This is a comprehensive book that covers all if not all security topics that have to do with GlassFish -- I checked all cases that I ran into when I was using / developing on / developing GlassFish. In all cases, the book did an excellent job in describing how GlassFish works, and how to setup or program the security aspects in question.

If you're working with GlassFish, this book deserves a place on your bookshelf!

(Full disclosure: the publisher sent me a free copy for evaluation)

Format: Paperback
The content
The book has eight chapters. After a short introduction to the Java EE security model in chapter one it moves on to GlassFish security realms. Another twenty something pages tell you about designing and developing secure Java EE applications. Chapter four dives into secure GlassFish environments followed by the fifth chapter caring for a secure GlassFish itself. Done with those, you are half through at page 146. The second half of the book is dedicated to two other products from the former Sun stack. Open Directory Services (OpenDS) is introduced in Chapter six. Followed by an introduction to OpenSSO (Open Single Sign-On) in chapter seven. Chapter eight describes how to secure Java EE applications using OpenSSO. The last chapter nine is dedicated to Web Service security with Open SSO. Each chapter is finished by a separate summary. The book closes with an index. Makes 275 content pages.

Writing and style
The book is an easy read. Not to complicated even for non native speakers like me. The author takes the time and space needed to describe most basic concepts and contexts. Very frequent links and tips in separate boxes help the reader to find out more about most of the topics. I also like the paperback and the format. It is easy to carry around and to use it as a reference book.

My expectations
To be honest, I expected to read more about GlassFish and security as the title promised. Half the book the author is working with OpenDS and OpenSSO. Both not part of the GlassFish family and not necessarily related to Enterprise Java development. For sure, both products address problems developers face working. But every enterprise has it's own solution for this. And I personally do meet commercial products far more often.

Format: Paperback
GlassFish is Sun Microsystems open source application server. It is a competitor to Jboss AS and Apache Geronimo in the open source arena, and is my app server of choice.

Packt Publishing requested that I review one of their latest titles on the subject of GlassFish: GlassFish Security by Masoud Kalali, available to buy from Packt's web site.

GlassFish Security has been a worth while read, adding to my awareness and knowledge of Java EE security best practices. I will definitely be applying the information presented in the book to current projects and future system design and development work.

GlassFish Security covers a very wide range of security topics, some of which will be applicable to web applications deployed on any JEE application server, whilst others are GlassFish and even host operating system specific.

The book doesn't just focus on programmatic security, making use of security APIs, annotations and XML configuration, but takes more of a complete systems view. OS and network security constraints, as well as enterprise wide system architecture considerations are explored.

The book is targeted at developers and system administrators, who have a sound footing working with JEE application servers, EJB development and have a working knowledge of Linux. To fully take advantage of this book you should know your way around the latest versions of GlassFish and probably NetBeans, have a Debian or Ubuntu install available, and have a keen interest in designing systems with security built in from the start.

The title of the book could quite easily have been GlassFish Security with OpenDS and OpenSSO, as they feature heavily in the later chapters.
