Web-based business applications need stringent security regulations. Within an application, each different role requires a predetermined set of access rights. In this article, Swaminathan Radhakrishnan explains how you can use Struts, taglibs, and servlet filters to develop a powerful and flexible security model that can be used directly by almost any Web-based business application.

These roles become more important in Web-based applications, which are accessible to a wider audience.
