ESAPI4JS - The new hotness!

So I have been hard at work on the ESAPI4JS code for the last couple of weeks, and have gotten it to a point where people can start to play with it. It will be in alpha for a bit yet, as not all the functionality is there, but here is a little of what you can do with it so far.

Download the script(s)

Import the Compressed or Uncompressed JS File on your page
<!-- Uncompressed Version -->
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript" src="esapi.js"></script>
<!-- Compressed Version -->
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript" src="esapi-compressed.js"></script>

Initialize the ESAPI

Do some cool stuff!
var val = "<div&gt;Test</div>";
alert( $ESAPI.encoder().encodeForHTML( val ) );
try {
   alert( $ESAPI.encoder().canonicalize( val ) );
} catch (e) {
   alert( e.getUserMessage() );

I should be getting some documentation written up this weekend that explains how to configure the ESAPI for JavaScript and how to use the functionality that is complete.

In the meantime, you can see the source for the ESAPI4JS Encoder which is fully implemented.

If you are interested in getting involved in the project, shoot me an email and we will see how you can help out!
