Wireless Internet Security: Architecture and Protocols

In describing tools for internet security, this title focuses on understanding the system architecture of existing security and on developing architectural changes for new security services. Topics include security threats in wireless networks, security services for countering those threats, and the process of defining functional architecture for network systems. Kempf also discusses examples of wireless Internet security systems such as wireless network access control, local IP subnet configuration and address resolution, and location privacy. Each chapter describes the basic network architecture and protocols for the system under consideration, security threats, functional architecture, and the important internet protocols that implement the architecture. This is an ideal resource for graduate students of electrical engineering and computer science, as well as for engineers and system architects in the wireless network industry.

Developing Service-Oriented AJAX Applications on the Microsoft® Platform

Delve into the fundamental architectural principles and techniques for developing service-oriented AJAX applications for the enterprise. This guide offers a code-heavy, example-based approach to learning how to write a modern services API and an AJAX front end that can easily be extended, reused, and integrated by third parties. Focusing on Microsoft technologies and enterprise servers, including Microsoft SharePoint(r) Server 2007, ASP.NET AJAX, and Microsoft .NET Frameworks 2.0, 3.0, and 3.5, this book walks you through a client-centric UI architecture programmed against an XML service-oriented backend. Topics include the Microsoft AJAX Library, Web services and an XML API, client-side XSLT, JavaScript AJAX communication, and integration with Microsoft servers. The book does not attempt to be an exhaustive reference, but focuses instead on fundamental architectural principles and guidance.

Microsoft® SQL Server® 2008 T-SQL Fundamentals

This book walks you through your first steps in T-SQL (also known as Transact-SQL), which is Microsoft SQL Server s dialect of the standard ANSI-SQL language. You ll learn the theory behind T-SQL querying and programming, how to develop T-SQL code to query and modify data, and get an overview of programmable objects. Although this book is intended for beginners, it is not merely a step-by-step book. It goes beyond the syntactical elements of T-SQL and explains the logic behind the language and its elements. Many aspects of SQL are unique to the language, and are very different from other programming languages. This book helps you adopt the right state of mind and gain a true understanding of the language elements. You learn how to think in terms of sets and follow good SQL programming practices. The book is not version-specific; it does, however, cover language elements that were introduced in recent versions of SQL Server, including SQL Server 2008. To complement the learning experience, the book provides exercises that enable you to practice what you ve learned. The book starts with a theoretical background to T-SQL querying and programming (Chapter 1) laying the foundations for the rest of the book, and also coverage of creating tables and defining data integrity. The book moves on to various aspects of querying and modifying data (Chapters 2 through 8), then to a discussion of concurrency and transactions (Chapter 9), and finally provides an overview of programmable objects (Chapter 10). This book features a companion Web site that makes available to you all the code used in the book, the errata, additional resources, and more.

Mac OS X Developer's Guide

Mac OS X, Apple's newest operating system for the Macintosh platform, is profoundly different from its earlier versions because of its similarity to the UNIX operating system. For developers writing software for OS X this means adjusting to two new environments to create applications and to access the enhanced features of the new OS, Cocoa and Carbon. Cocoa is an object-oriented API in which all future OS X programs will be written. Carbon is a transitional technology allowing compatibility of applications written for earlier versions of the Mac OS with Mac OS X.

Mac OS X Developer's Guide focuses equally on Cocoa and Carbon, guiding the reader through these technologies and showing how to write applications in both. It is the first book for Mac OS X developers written for those who are already working on applications, as well as new developers just getting started. It starts off describing the new OS and its development tools then focuses on specific programming issues, providing tips on making the transition from classic Mac OS code to Mac OS X.

* A guide for developers already writing applications as well as new developers just getting started
* Focuses equally on both Cocoa and Carbon environments
* Provides tips on transitioning from writing code for classic Mac OS to OS X
* References Apple online materials extensively, to keep developers up to speed on changes

As you begin developing for Mac OS X, you'll face major changes, lots of difficult decisions, and also some terrific opportunities. The Mac OS X Developer's Guide aims to do more than help you make the transition painlessly: It's dedicated to helping you capitalize on these opportunities and positively thrive in this new environment.

Inside is the background you need to get started, the instruction and examples you need to move forward, and the expert advice you need to solve your toughest programming challenges. At a stage where others may struggle to get up to speed, you can work more efficiently while building more powerful, more usable, more robust applications. That's the beauty of Mac OS X, and of the Mac OS X Developer's Guide.

Incisive coverage that will help you:
* Understand Mac OS X, including how it works, its UNIX roots, and how best to develop for it.
* Develop applications using both the Cocoa and Carbon frameworks.
* Optimize your Carbon application with Carbon events and use direct dispatch in Carbon and Cocoa to make your applications more efficient.
* Write Mac OS X programs using C, C++, Java, and Objective-C (includes extensive example code).
* Build applications that take full advantage of all of Aqua's features.
* Port existing applications to Mac OS X.
* Create new applications that run effectively on both Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X.
* Master critical development skills, including prototyping, managing menus, writing and using services, working with events, manipulating files, designing interfaces, and building reusable components.
* Get around in the latest versions of Project Builder and Interface Builder.

Building Websites with Joomla! 1.5


Building Websites with Joomla! 1.5


Joomla also has an interesting functionality. It lets you, the website author or owner, publish Joomla-generated URLs that are search engine friendly. Various search engines tend not to store long URLs, where there are many arguments in these, after the host name. The assumption is that the URLs refer to dynamic [ie. transient] content. Hence there is little point to the engine storing these URLs, or the pages pointed to by them. But you want the engine to store your website’s URLs, right? What Joomla does is rewrite the URLs in a more compact form, which improves the chances of an engine recording these. And thus offering your website in its free results. of groups of users. Joomla offers Registered, Author, Editor and Publisher. With subsidiary groups of Manager, Administrator and Super Admin. The administrative tasks are done within a simple GUI that frees you from memorising arcane command lines. where the intent is for users to have a persistent login. To this ends, Joomla offers a separation of functions, for the user and for the administrator [you presumably]. As the book demonstrates, it’s pretty easy for you to create user accounts.
