Using WebComponents with Java on the serverside and how to harden the stack against known Vulnerabilities


This talk shows the use of pure client-side web components using Java on the server-side. We will have a look at the tech-stack, how it looks like for a developer, and how to harden against known vulnerabilities.

In this session, Sven will show how pure WebComponents are connected to Core Java. Server-side web components are a huge plus for convenience, but at the same time, it’s Pandora’s box in terms of security too. How can you close this gap and eliminate the weaknesses? He’ll show you how to start with free tools to protect your stack against known security vulnerabilities, increase server-side productivity while working on web-based GUIs, and why an excellent JUnit5 test will be your seat belt.
