  7 misunderstandings of DNS resolution


DNS resolution is generally considered as providing mapping between domain name and IP address, for example www.google.com maps to 74.125.71.103. There are two important reasons for doing DNS resolution: IP address is hard to remember, while domain name is human friendly Virtual host may access different contents according to the header of the host domain name(sub-domain name) Some webmasters may have some unreasonable requirements when doing DNS resolution. It mainly because they are not very...

  Using PHP sessions across subdomains


By default, PHP uses the 'PHPSESSID' cookie to propagate session data across multiple pages, and by default it uses the current top-level domain and subdomain in the cookie declaration. Example: www.domain.com The downside to this is that the session data can't travel with you to other subdomains. So if you started a session on www.domain.com, the session data would become unavailable on forums.domain.com. The solution is to change the domain PHP uses when it sets the 'PHPSESSID' cookie. ...

  Subdomain Configuration


Subdomain ConfigurationA subdomain configuration is very similar to a domain name configuration. The only difference is that the subdomain entry is tied to the corresponding domain name lookup. A request for the subdomain (e.g. http://content.websitegear.com) will be routed to a DNS server containing the DNS information for the parent domain (websitegear.com). Once the DNS record for the subdomain is resolved to a particular IP address, the request is sent to the web server listening on that IP ...

  Access control in Java -- Permission check order


Previously we showed you how to turn on SecurityManager in Java. After SecurityManager is turned on, a series of permission checks will be applied on the code you are calling in your application to protect some resources against malicious access such as files, sockets etc. To perform these permission checks, a set of Permissions will be created and checked using the AccessController. The AccessController has three purposes : To decide whether an access to a critical system resource is to be all...

  How to play with cross domain request


What is cross domain request In simple, cross domain request is to request resource from other domain in one domain. Note, the "other domain" doesn't just mean domain name only, it includes much more. If the protocol, domain name, port is not the same, two domains will be considered different.  Below example describes what is considered as different domain. http://www.a.com/a.jshttp://www.a.com/b.js               # Same domainhttp://www.a.com/lab/a.js &nb...

  Benefits and Drawback of a Layered Architecture


Most enterprises today are application centric. But the problem with the application is that their database schemas, user interfaces, programming interfaces and object models are tightly coupled and difficult to change. If you want to add a new field to a database table and you’re lucky, the change will reflect through the entire system. But often the change needs to be replicated manually across the entire system. And as applications are difficult to change, adding business rules or proce...
