Google Web Toolkit Node

Google Web Toolkit (GWT) is an open-source toolkit that enables developers to develop and debug AJAX applications in the Java language. The toolkit translates this code into browser-compliant JavaScript and HTML. This translation, however, does not make JavaScript code secure. Similar to other JavaScript, it can be vulnerable to several types of security exploits.

Acunetix 360 helps you to become aware of any GWT-RPC requests that are identified during a scan. When such requests are identified, it means that a web application built with Google Web Toolkit is running on the target server. They are sometimes referred to as GWT Requests. You can use the parameter name listed in the node Google Web Toolkit to configure a default value that can be used during the attack phase of the Scan. To add the default value, you specify it in Form Values in the Scan Policy settings and from the Match column, then select Exact.

Once the scan is completed, all Google Web Toolkit use is listed under the Google Web Toolkit node in the Knowledge Base. You can access the same information in the Knowledge Base Report and Knowledge Base Tab.



Acunetix 360 forms Knowledge Base nodes on its findings. If the Google Web Toolkit node is not listed, it means that Acunetix 360 did not find any.

For further information, see Knowledge Base Nodes.
