That's really more the responsibility of the vendor of the original software, not of a 3rd party testing app. THEY are the ones that know when their updates are ready.
I agree that the vendors are responsible for fixing their software, but there are a variety of reasons that software doesn't get updated. I think it would be a selling point if the code scanners included warnings. Not that it is their responsibility.

With respect to your project, you could consider Grails. You write groovy scripts (superset of java) and grails tools will generate the web pages (with the option to customize them) with protection from sql injection attacks as part of the underlying GORM framework. Other web attacks must be handled using third party plugins and custom code.

Thanks.

Then it's good that I warned you about scams.
