Reading a Java class file

I have a Java class file which I need to view in text format on Linux. So please let me know how I can convert the class file to a readable format. The Java version is 1.4.2_05.

There must be some way to interpret the .Class file too using tools such as editor or converter etc
Bytecodes are the machine language of the Java virtual machine. When a JVM loads a class file, it gets one stream of bytecodes for each method in the class.

and class file which is not readable .

if class file is readable then your program became open soure and i think you might think this should not be happend...
