Java agent

The Contrast Java agent adds either Contrast Assess or Contrast Protect analysis to Java based applications. The agent analyzes Java web applications built on traditional application servers, and newer Java web applications such as those built with Netty, Play, Vert.x or Spring Boot. If there's a JVM, the Java agent can get security insights.

To start analyzing an application, install the Java agent by adding it as -javaagent JVM parameter. Then, as your application runs, the Java agent's sensors gather information about the application's security, architecture and libraries. You can see the results of the agent's analysis in Contrast.
