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.

> obscurification tool to scramble the .class files, so

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