Securing your application is a very important aspect of the development of your application. You not only need to make sure that the application has the intended functionality but also that this functionality can only be executed by the appropriate people. You not only need to make sure that updates to data are restricted to the correct people, but it is also important that end users only see data they are allowed to see. And in case of sensitive data, this is even more important.

How do you choose the correct versions of your application's libraries so they are not in conflict with the ones in the server runtime?
