Java developers would probably rather be coding Web services applications than learning the intricacies of Web services security, surmises Kathy Kriese, senior product manager at RSA Security. But in a classic dilemma, you can't have one without the other.

Complicating things further, if a developer doesn't have a core competency in security, they very well may leave holes that a hacker could drive a truck through.

"Security isn't an easy area to do right," Kriese told JDT. "People not familiar with it find it very hard to do."

The result is the constant news of yet another security hole being discovered and possibly exploited in another Web services application.
