How do I "decompile" Java class files? [closed]
There are several tools that you can use to "decompile" Java class files and view the source code. Some popular ones include:
- JD-GUI: This is a standalone graphical utility that displays Java source codes of ".class" files. You can download it from https://github.com/java-decompiler/jd-gui
- JAD: This is a command-line decompiler for Java class files. You can download it from http://varaneckas.com/jad/
- CFR: This is another command-line decompiler that can be used to decompile Java class files. You can download it from https://www.benf.org/other/cfr/
To decompile a Java class file using any of these tools, simply open the tool and use it to open the ".class" file that you want to decompile. The tool will then display the decompiled source code for the class.
Keep in mind that decompiling a class file will not always produce an exact replica of the original source code, as some information may be lost during the compilation process. However, the decompiled code should be similar to the original and should be sufficient for most purposes.
