Web app security using Struts, servlet filters, and custom taglibs
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.
Enterprise-level business applications need rigorous security regulations with varying roles; each role also requires its own set of access control lists. These roles become more important in Web-based applications, which are accessible to a wider audience. In most cases, application security must control access to each attribute that's visible on the screen.
In this article, you will develop a generic security solution that can be used by most enterprise-level Web applications.
