what is this project?
Name: OWASP Java Encoder Project (home page)
  • This project is a simple-to-use drop-in encoder class with little baggage.
  • This code was donated from SuccessFactors as part of the OWASP JXT project. This code was designed for high-availability/high-performanceencoding functionality.
  • The current code base averages: 744ns/encode for XML We have plans to optimize it past: 450ns/encode (fairly easily) ESAPI.encodeForXML with same benchmark data: 3450ns/encode (7x slower)
  • The key motivation for the separate project was:
  1. Simple drop-in encoding functionality
  2. Redesigned for performance
  3. More complete API (uri and uri component encoding, etc) in some regards.
  • This is a Java 1.5 project.
  • We are currently finishing up the core encoding capability and will have all of the other ESAPI-encoder functions supported soon as well.
