Hi, and welcome to the forum!

Currently, Blend4Web doesn't support procedural animation with curves, but there is an easy workaround. You can bake the animation using a native Blender animation baker. Hit spacebar and type "Bake Action".

It can't be solved using only Blender Baker tool because there's also a mesh modification during moving through a spline. You also need to bake vertex animation, but it's better to recreate this using armature system with simple armature animation.
Here's your file with baked animation:
testmodifiercurve.blend
fara.html
Blend4web and that kind of thing.

well i have progress with baking but still have problem
i can ' t loop exactly ( in blender it loops but not in webgl)
and after a while my cylinder goes outside the plan in webgl

But I can see that in Blender it's doesn't loop too.
