Project Information


The OWASP Java™ and JVM Project is the clearing house for all information related to building secure web applications and services based on Java and JVM technologies. The focus of the project is on guidance for developers using Java frameworks and JVM based technologies for web application development, on OWASP components that use Java and on participation in OWASP projects that use Java and JVM technologies. The project is not limited to Java. It aims to also address topics around the JVM in general.

Community content is key to security information. The project depends on content from developers throughout the Java and JVM ecosystem.


  • Provide deep, rich guidance for Java developers in using the security features of Java and of Java frameworks.
  • Address security in relation to the Java Virtual Machine and derived technologies.
  • Create guidance for use of OWASP components that are designed for use with Java or other JVM languages.
  • Focus on information about working with and on OWASP tools built using Java or other JVM technologies.
  • Provide a stream of security related information, like vulnerabilities and security patches, related to the Java and JVM universe.
  • Build an ecosystem allowing to all actors interested to discuss, share and learn.
