There has been an exponential increase in the number of attacks on web applications during the recent years. This paper presents a guideline for programmers to develop robust web applications in terms of security by identification of latest web application security vulnerabilities and devising their control using open source dynamic and static web application security assessment tools. A highly vulnerable web application is taken as a sample and it is projected to dynamic tools which lookup for security loopholes in it according to its behavior in the actual working environment and static tools lookup for security loopholes in the programming logics by static analysis of the actual source code.
