JavaWorld: Naked Web services

JavaWorld published a piece titled "Are your Web Services Naked or Covered?" I co-authored this article to highlight the impact of exception handling techniqes on web services-based SOA. You will learn exception handling constructs that ensure your web services do not leak sensitive information to the consumer.

"Bottom line: For externally facing web services exposed to a large number of public consumers, only recoverable exceptions should be communicated. All other exceptions should be controlled, cleansed, or suppressed."
