look at this book:
http://www.amazon.com/Covert-Java-Techniques-Decompiling-Engineering/dp/0672326388/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1317666073&sr=1-2

why are you so concentrated in reverse engineering?
I'd think it is a last resort measure - when you have a legacy application, you need to patch it, the original
developer is long buried, nothing else can be done, they are going to fire you when you will not patch the code  -
that's when you start thinking about decompiling

why in the world, we will goto reverse eng. to find out flaws and security issues.

what you say about ?????? Syngress - Sockets, Shellcode, Porting & Coding - Reverse Engineering Exploits And Tool Coding For Security Professionals"

right, thats what i am looking for a pure reverse eng. stuff regardless of Programming Language.
