Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

Provide Default Values for Applet Parameters

You can customize your applets by providing parameters at runtime in <param>. But it is a good practice to always provide default values, when specific values for parameters are not provided.

You can do this by checking for null values and/or proper type checking (if you expect numeric or date values). Here is the code:
public class MyApplet extend Applet {

         public void  init(){

          // Get the Parameter
	  String  frameTitle = getParameter("FRAME_TITLE");
	  // Check for Null
	   if (frameTitle  == null) {
	       // Provide Default value
	        frameTitle = "Frame to Test Parameters";

	  String frameWidthString = getParameter("FRAME_WIDTH");
	  int   frameWidthInt = 0;

	        frameWidthInt =  Integer.parseInt(frameWidthString);
	  } catch(Exception ex){
	       // Catch Exception if frameWidthString is null or invalid value
               // Default value
	       frameWidthInt = 100;

	  String frameHeightString = getParameter("FRAME_WIDTH");
	  int   frameHeightInt = 0;
	        frameHeightInt =  Integer.parseInt( frameHeightString );
	  } catch(Exception ex){
	       // Provide Default Value
	       frameHeightString = 100;

	 Frame f = new Frame(frameTitle);
