Java Decompiler

Im looking for a free/shareware Java decompiler that will decompile code that contains invalid method names and things, like that produced by a obfuscator.

The reason being, I've been following the development of the client side of a game called RuneScape, seeing how problems have been overcome, and how the program is structured.

The author keeps updating the code regularly, and up till now my DJ Decompiler has worked fine.

But, when I come to decomile the file "mudclient.class" last night, my decompiler reports an invalid name!

The classes can be obtained from www.RuneScape.com, if you want to test out any decompiler that you reccommend, by using the files left in the Internet Temporary files folder after running the game.

You can decompile a .class file using JAD (JAva Decompiler). You can download it from its home site.

 It will work fine provided the class does not have a native call to any library or shared object / DLL.

Hi Lab Rat

There are several other decompilers, for example mocha and jode.

Mocha:  http://www.brouhaha.com/~eric/computers/mocha.html
JODE:  http://jode.sourceforge.net/

And the Linux Decompiler HOWTO lists some more:

its illegal to use it if its not your code or if it has copyrights.

The frontEnd uses JAD at the backend. But this is a simple and good one. I use this.
