Errata Notice:

Hi, First, thanks for buying and reading the book, here is a list of the problems I've discovered so far. I'm not sure exactly what process this file needs to go through to get from me to you, so I will keep an up to date version at: http://preinheimer.com/prowebapis/errata.txt

If you find any problems/bugs/mistakes not listed here please let me know at: paul@preinheimer.com

I'm well aware that there are copies of the book floating around the net in .pdf or windows help format, if you came to this file after reading one of those, and found my book helpful please consider purchasing a copy, I worked hard on the book so you wouldn't have to work quite so hard working on APIs.

12 SECURITY ISSUE in Chapter 12

The demonstrated REST API framework is vulnerable to XSS attacks since it displays un-escaped data when a call is made with an unknown paramater. Corrected code (simply applying htmlentities()) appears in the appropriate code file.
