  1. AndroChef Java Decompiler is available: http://www.neshkov.com/ac_decompiler.html

  2. Very useful , I had a scenario where I needed to re-engineer code from .ear file in which I had used a Java decompiler.

  3. Very useful, I even managed to integrate it into JDeveloper

  4. I'm glad that I'm able to say here how much I appreciate your decompiler software. It's _very_ impressive. I was tired of struggling with awkward, amateurish decompilers and I'm so glad to have found your software. Being able to see the source of each file in the right-hand window the instant I select a file as I browse the classes is great! Thanks again!
