Hi ya

Application vulnerabilities are numerous depending on various attack vectors.
So, you can't find a summarized guide. You have to read a relatively big book.
But to have a foundation, you can learn from presentations at slideshare.net

However, first, you should read:
http://www.webappsec.org/projects/threat/

Then, read
http://www.owasp.org/index.php/Category:OWASP_Testing_Project

Then, practice:
