Servlet Code Obfuscator

I've seen quite a few java code obfuscators around but I'm unsure how they work when they are employed to obfuscate servlet code. Any recommedations on which is the best to use for this?
Thanks,
bd

JAX from ibm (alphaworks.ibm.com) is free and pretty good one.
generally speaking, there is no difference if you are going to obfuscate servlets, applets or applications

From what i read from the web site, JAX compresses the class files but it doesnt obfuscate them does it?

yes it does. (it compresses them by replacing your 'long' method names with 'shorter' ones)
