The only comprehensive set of guidelines for secure Java programming - from the field's leading organizations, CERT and Oracle • •Authoritative, end-to-end code-level requirements for building secure systems with any recent version of Java, including the new Java 7 •Presents techniques that also improve safety, reliability, dependability, robustness, availability, maintainability, and other attributes of quality. •Includes extensive risk assessment guidance, plus references for further information. This is the first authoritative, comprehensive compilation of code-level requirements for building secure systems in Java. Organized by CERT's pioneering software security experts, with support from Oracle's own Java platform developers, it covers every facet of secure software coding with Java 7 SE and Java 6 SE, and offers value even to developers working with other Java versions. The authors itemize the most common coding errors leading to vulnerabilities in Java programs, and provide specific guidelines for avoiding each of them. They show how to produce programs that are not only secure, but also safer, more reliable, more robust, and easier to maintain. After a high-level introduction to Java application security, eighteen consistently-organized chapters detail specific guidelines for each facet of Java development. Each set of guidelines defines conformance, presents both noncompliant examples and corresponding compliant solutions, shows how to assess risk, and offers references for further information. To limit this book's size, the authors focus on 'normative requirements': strict rules for what programmers must do for their work to be secure, as defined by conformance to specific standards that can be tested through automated analysis software. (Note: A follow-up book will present 'non-normative requirements': recommendations for what Java developers typically 'should' do to further strengthen program security beyond testable 'requirements.')
The Definitive Guide to Java Platform Best Practices–Updated for Java 7, 8, and 9 Java has changed dramatically since the previous edition of Effective Java was published shortly after the release of Java 6. This Jolt award-winning classic has now been thoroughly updated to take full advantage of the latest language and library features. The support in modern Java for multiple paradigms increases the need for specific best-practices advice, and this book delivers. As in previous editions, each chapter of Effective Java, Third Edition, consists of several “items,” each presented in the form of a short, stand-alone essay that provides specific advice, insight into Java platform subtleties, and updated code examples. The comprehensive descriptions and explanations for each item illuminate what to do, what not to do, and why. The third edition covers language and library features added in Java 7, 8, and 9, including the functional programming constructs that were added to its object-oriented roots. Many new items have been added, including a chapter devoted to lambdas and streams. New coverage includes Functional interfaces, lambda expressions, method references, and streams Default and static methods in interfaces Type inference, including the diamond operator for generic types The @SafeVarargs annotation The try-with-resources statement New library features such as the Optional interface, java.time, and the convenience factory methods for collections
Reflecting the newest trends in computer science, new and revised material throughout the Second Edition of this book places increased emphasis on abstract data types (ADTs) and object-oriented design. This book continues to offer a thorough, well-organized, and up-to-date presentation of essential principles and practices in data structures using C++. Topics include C++'s I/O and string classes, pointers and dynamic allocation, lists, array-based and linked-list implementations of stacks, queues, searching, inheritance and more. For computer professionals in companies that have computing departments or those who want advanced training in C++.
This new, expanded textbook describes all phases of a modern compiler: lexical analysis, parsing, abstract syntax, semantic actions, intermediate representations, instruction selection via tree matching, dataflow analysis, graph-coloring register allocation, and runtime systems. It includes good coverage of current techniques in code generation and register allocation, as well as functional and object-oriented languages, that are missing from most books. In addition, more advanced chapters are now included so that it can be used as the basis for a two-semester or graduate course. The most accepted and successful techniques are described in a concise way, rather than as an exhaustive catalog of every possible variant. Detailed descriptions of the interfaces between modules of a compiler are illustrated with actual C header files. The first part of the book, Fundamentals of Compilation, is suitable for a one-semester first course in compiler design. The second part, Advanced Topics, which includes the advanced chapters, covers the compilation of object-oriented and functional languages, garbage collection, loop optimizations, SSA form, loop scheduling, and optimization for cache-memory hierarchies.
A sweeping tale from the original Queen of Romance, originally published in 1929 and now available in eBook for the first time. Joanna is distraught when Richard leaves. It is difficult to be brave, knowing he is returning to his wife. The decision seemed right; but alone now, she writhes in the torment of separation. The vast wastes of snow and spruce stretch out into the black of the moonless Arctic night and Joanna loses herself in the overwhelming expanse... Suddenly, a sled pulls up to the cabin and stops. A man in furs jumps off and shakes back the hood to reveal a face that Joanna once knew... a face that now makes her heart beat faster in terror.
The third edition of Java Precisely provides a concise description of the Java programming language, version 8.0. It offers a quick reference for the reader who has already learned (or is learning) Java from a standard textbook and who wants to know the language in more detail. The book presents the entire Java programming language and essential parts of the class libraries: the collection classes, the input-output classes, the stream libraries and Java 8's facilities for parallel programming, and the functional interfaces used for that.Though written informally, the book describes the language in detail and offers many examples. For clarity, most of the general rules appear on left-hand pages with the relevant examples directly opposite on the right-hand pages. All examples are fragments of legal Java programs. The complete ready-to-run example programs are available on the book's website.This third edition adds material about functional parallel processing of arrays; default and static methods on interfaces; a brief description of the memory model and visibility across concurrent threads; lambda expressions, method reference expressions, and the related functional interfaces; and stream processing, including parallel programming and collectors.

The Model Driven Architecture defines an approach where the specification of the functionality of a system can be separated from its implementation on a particular technology platform. The idea being that the architecture will be able to easily be adapted for different situations, whether they be legacy systems, different languages or yet to be invented platforms. MDA is therefore, a significant evolution of the object-oriented approach to system development. Advanced System Design with Java, UML and MDA describes the factors involved in designing and constructing large systems, illustrating the design process through a series of examples, including a Scrabble player, a jukebox using web streaming, a security system, and others. The book first considers the challenges of software design, before introducing the Unified Modelling Language and Object Constraint Language. The book then moves on to discuss systems design as a whole, covering internet systems design, web services, Flash, XML, XSLT, SOAP, Servlets, Javascript and JSP. In the final section of the book, the concepts and terminology of the Model Driven Architecture are discussed. To get the most from this book, readers will need introductory knowledge of software engineering, programming in Java and basic knowledge of HTML. * Examines issues raised by the Model-Driven Architecture approach to development * Uses easy to grasp case studies to illustrate complex concepts * Focused on the internet applications and technologies that are essential for students in the online age

"We are on our way to Le Havre. The train is going so fast that the landscape is all but a blur. From time to time, I can see a farm in the mist surrounded by a sea of green fields. I am excited but also scared. It is 1955, and we are on our way to New York." So begins the marvelous journey of Colette Rossant, just married to an American architect and about to leave France for a new life in the heart of New York City. At first, Colette finds Americans' manners to be as mystifying as their cuisine, but before long, she discovers the myriad charms of her adopted country. Between taking on an astoundingly diverse series of jobs, raising four children, and renovating a Soho town house, Colette develops her own flair for food -- and for superb food writing. In this spirited and deliciously entertaining memoir, Colette shares the unforgettable stories of her forty tumultuous years at the heart of American and international cuisine. The children's cooking school she starts for her daughter's friends turns into a starring role on a PBS television series. As New York magazine's "Underground Gourmet," she hails the city's staggering array of outstanding ethnic cuisine. Either with her husband and children, or on her own, she travels to Africa, China, Japan, and South America, exploring cuisine and culture around the globe. She rides camels through the Australian outback, barters lipstick for fresh vegetables in Tanzania, and is almost arrested as a spy by the Chinese secret police -- just because she is trying to eat like a local. Charming, indomitable, endlessly curious and adventurous, Colette Rossant inspires us to savor every meal -- and every day. With a wonderful array of mouth-watering recipes, The World in My Kitchen is an irresistible celebration of family, food, and life.

Since 2007, the European Union and the euro (the currency of most of its members) have been struggling, to put it mildly. The EU seems to have lost its competitiveness against the United States and emerging countries. The eurozone crisis has turned into a succession of country crises ebbing and flowing like the tide, threatening to poison the entire eurozone and jeopardizing world economic growth. This book examines the period of turmoil, putting it into a larger historical, institutional, and economic context, and outlining the efforts of the EU and its Member States to escape economic and financial meltdown. The book explains the fundamental elements of the Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) that the EU has been developing for more than half a century, starting from a customs union, via the single market, to the adoption of the euro. The institutional architecture of the EMU is explained in a clear and straightforward way that also pinpoints the weaknesses that have endangered the euro from the very start. Preserving the euro requires the further deepening of the EMU. The book explains the reasons why a fiscal union is needed, as well as the role played by a whole new set of rules that limit budgetary and economic policy freedom of the Member States. It also sets out the need for a banking union with European supervision of financial institutions and a Europe-wide resolution and deposit guarantee scheme. In addition, the new face of monetary policy is analyzed, with its unconventional tools, such as outright monetary transactions and long-term funding of financial institutions. It argues that the euro is a one-way street, that the EMU will be further enlarged, and that finalizing it will require the transfer of yet more national sovereignty to a fully fledged economic union with its own economic government. This long transition period will provoke political and diplomatic tensions in the years to come. The European Union and Euro is the first book to offer a comprehensive and forward-looking view of the eurozone crisis. [Subject: EU Law, Economic Law, Finance Law]
