Hanna Dyer designed the cover of Java Security, based on a series design by Edie Freedman.

The cover layout was produced with Quark XPress 3.3 using the Bodoni Black font from URW Software and Bodoni BT Bold Italic from Bitstream. The inside layout was designed by Nancy Priest. Text was prepared by Mike Sierra in FrameMaker 5.0. The heading font is Bodoni BT; the text font is New Baskerville. The illustrations that appear in the book were created in Macromedia Freehand 7.0 by Robert Romano.
The online edition of this book was created by the Safari production group (John Chodacki, Becki Maisch, and Madeleine Newell) using a set of Frame-to-XML conversion and cleanup tools written and maintained by Erik Ray, Benn Salter, John Chodacki, and Jeff Liggett.
