Response to: Brave work! ----- from Roboo

As a matter of fact some time ago I built a proof of concept version of ModSecurity in Java. In some respects it is better than the original (eg more modular, supports stateful actions). The good thing about Java is that request filters are a part of the core Servlet specification, therefore ModSecurity/Java works on all Java Web servers equally.


Because there was very little interest for a Java version of ModSecurity I never posted it on the site. Eventually, I probably will, but at the moment I am still adding features to the original.

      I think it is just that Java people don't know ModSecurity for Java exist :) I'll post what I have online in the next month or so and we'll see.
