OWASP Java Project Header.png


The OWASP Java™ and JVM Project is the clearing house for all information related to building secure web/distributed applications and services based on Java and JVM technologies. The focus of the project is on guidance for developers and architects 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. Moreover, we aim to provide security related guidance for system administrators managing Java and JVM based applications and tools.

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.
  • Guide system administrators in managing Java and JVM related components and applications.
  • 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.

OWASP ESAPI Project Java Implementation The Java and Java EE implementation of ESAPI Project is outdated and integrates various security issues, according to the bug tracker. It is strongly recommended to not employ this library in production code anymore and use alternative OWASP libraries instead. It still is useful for learning purposes. [Page], [Tracker]

There are many ways of getting involved in an OWASP Documentation projects.

The first step would be to establish contact with the project leaders and/or the entire team. This can be done using a direct and private message, or by joining the public mailing list to say hello.

When it comes to participating in project activities, everything depends on the time you are willing and able to invest. It is however very important to not jump into too many things at the beginning, later having to back out or to let unfinished things behind you. It is much better to start with small tasks, increasing intensity and investment over time.

Please also be patient with expecting the "merge" of your work into the existing project pages and code. As everywhere in live, trust has to be built-up.

The Java and Project has currently multiple tasks open, which can be found on the adequate section of this page. Note all tasks require a wiki account. Please take something you are interested in and start participating. Work load is not the only outcome when participating in open projects. You are getting a lot of things back: recognition, satisfaction, knowledge and contacts, sometime friends.

Sounds cool? Then jump in…

To get involved join the mailing list, follow this link: OWASP Java and JVM Mailing List
