Hi prasen,

That's easy to do in Java, but not in a compiled language. The DLL consists of machine code created by a compiler and it's practically impossible to get the source back. There are a few tools out there that will create at least readable Assembler code, but I'm not sure if that's good enough.
If the DLL is a commercial product you might even violate the vendor's rights by disassembling the dll.
