Take a Quiz to Win a Copy of Masoud Kalali's "GlassFish Security"

Posted by editor on September 29, 2010 at 10:03 AM PDT

Masoud Kalali is giving away three copies of his new book, GlassFish Security (published by Packt Publishing). To be among the winners, you have to successfully complete a five question quiz that's based on the content of Chapter 3 of the book, "Designing and Developing Secure Java EE Applications."

Masoud says he'll

"give away some copies of the book to 3 lucky winners who answered all 5 questions correctly. We will give away 1 paper copy to someone in USA or Europe and two e-books to any lucky winner either in those two continent or not. It wont take more than 2-3 minutes to answer the questions and you will get the chance to receive a copy of the book when I draw the winners on October 10th."

So, you've got less than two weeks to download Chapter 3, understand it, and take the quiz.

A final note: Masoud discovered that his quiz software has some problems with Firefox; he advises that you "please go with Google Chrome or Apple Safari."
