I don't think it's easy to make an anti-virus in java.
Because anti-virus need touch the core of system.
How could the java make it?

No, it has no sense to write antivirus in Java. This question was discussed on different forums.

Totally agree with it. Till JVM Starts probably everything on your PC could be deleted.

i dont htink its impossible but kindda hard
you can apply the signature method easily i think
but aplying the behaviour based system is much harder

its easy to implement sinature based method
but wont give u much protection
it can only scan the system and compare every file for previously detected viruses(u need md5 signature database of these)
