Validating request and cookie objects

Hi All,

I'm looking for some open source API's or framework that validates both request object and cookies. Say for example if some one enters any scripting characters in any text box this framework will sit on top of all the requests that validates for these type of inputs from users and shows appropriate message or error page.

I know there is OWASP Stinger filter that does this but I'm looking for some other alternative.

I really appreciate if some one can help me.

Since I'm desperate for a suitable answer for this I also posting the same message in Intermediate forum. I apologize if this is any inconvenience to any of you.


Thanks.

What requirement do you have that it doesn't need? This will help people recommend a suitable alternative.

Jeanne, basically I just need to filter and validate all the name value pairs before the request gets processed. OWASP Stinger serves the purpose. I also want to know are there any better alternatives or other frameworks that does this with more active community and documentation etc.

Bear, done the change.

Thanks.
