hi this is shreshth. i just wanted to develop a application layer filter in JAVA. just wanted to know how to go about it which components to use etc etc. please help me in this and i shall be greatful to you.
I really doubt if it can be done in java. Your program might need to sit on a network card and analyze packet data and cherry pick them. I have not worked with java sockets much but I really wonder if it can do something like that. C++ on the other hand is very capable with sockets. It can even allow you to implement raw sockets if you so please and the networking APIs are pretty fine grained and very powerful.
