We are looking for a virus scan product that has a java api.

I've tried searching google and this site and haven't found anything interesting yet.

I've found information about using Norton's command line tool, but that information is from 2004.

http://forum.java.sun.com/thread.jspa?threadID=547560&messageID=2676460

Does anyone know if there are any virus scanning tools made for the java api yet?

Thanks for your time.

*bump*

Is there anyone with information on this topic? There has got to be someone performing virus scanning in a java based web application.

Thanks for your time.

If you can run the public domain virus engine ClamAV as a daemon somewhere, then you can access it through sockets as mentioned here.

The Apache James mail server -which is written in Java- apparently does this, so you may be able to lift some code from it.
