If you're running a Resin instance behind Apache, you could also look at 


The open-source version is an Apache module with a rule engine (and a 
rule language) that might be useful to do the kind of thing you're 
looking for. The core rule sets are fairly substantial (they also deal 
with, amongst other things, SQL injection and XSS), but if all you want 
to do is fence off a single URL, you should be able to write a rule for 
that without too much effort.
