Hi all,

I have a servlet site with uploading capabilities.
Due to the recent spat of viruses, i need to scan through an upload and the user will need to be prompted if the upload contains a virus . How can i go about doing this ? I have been through a few sites like norton but they do not provide such APIs . It doesn't have to be free.

Thanks

I seriously doubt that you will find anyone providing Java APIs for anti-virus scanning functionality. However, it is fairly easy to write native code in C/C++ bridging the gap between Java and the native world.

You can find some illuminating sample code here: http://java.sun.com/developer/codesamples/jni.html

You will need to use the 'javah' tool to generate the C stub file you will use:

I think you're out of luck. This SDK might be of interest though.

Good luck!
