I have recently lost all my Java source code due to a major hard drive failure. All I have left is my HTML and Class files on my web server. Is there anyway to reconstruct my .java files from the .class files? I really don't fancy rewriting all that code!

NMI's Java Code Viewer is able to decompile Java classes and reproduce the source code.
It does not always work, and sometimes you will have to modify a little the code it (re)produces
but I think this is currently the best tool for that on the market. There is a free trial.
