Project Sputnik : Idea
Working as an Application Security Analyst as well as a being a custom Application Developer requires a unique set up for me.
Chrome, as well as Open-office Suite and xPDF to cover reporting, and opening Microsoft Office Files, and the sun Java install.
For Java, PHP, Coldfusion, and Flex Development start with XAMPP and ColdFusion server installs and Eclipse has me covered with a few plugins for coding. I start with the PHP Helios version of Eclipse located here, the benefit it has all the tools already installed for my PHP and Java development, I have added the following Plug-ins to complete the install:
QuantumDB – allows me to connect to several DBMS including DB2, Oracle, msSql, & mySql
CFEclipse – Handles my ColdFusion development
SubClipse – svn check in and checkout (there are several version control plug ins for different systems including Perforce, and VSS just look around for the one you need)
fbForLinux – Takes care of my flex development on Linux works great and allows me to do air development as well (no design view).
Adobe Air for Linux – This will allow me to install the Design View Air Application for flex. I rarely use it coming from a hand coding background, but sometimes it is nice to see your flex application in design view.
A few wine programs I install:
SqlYog – Although for the most part I stick with Quantum plug-in for database development from time to time I do use sqlYog for mySql development runs fine with wine.
ScreenCalipers – need to see some sizes this works great
fsCapture – there may be better Linux equivalents I’m just used to using this one
Nessues, nMap, Nikto, John The Ripper, Hydra, metasploit to get started
