It is easy to build a proxy server in Java. It is hard to build a firewall in Java.


To build a proxy server, you need to open a java.io.Socket, listen for data, then make that same request to some other server and proxy the response.


A firewall needs to be able to block network requests from other programs. Java just doesn't have the APIs to accomplish this.
