Hi all,

I'm working on a applet program which is downloaded to the
client computer in a cab/jar file. I'm looking for an
obscurification tool to scramble the .class files, so
if someone manages to decompile the code, they'll only
see garbage. Any help is appreciated.

  Hmmm... Maybe you mean obfuscation instead of obscurification....
