Jad + Emacs

Here's a nifty little emacs package - decompile.el. It, on the fly, uses jad to decompile Java .class files.

Jad is one of those nifty tools that makes debugging a live system infinitely easier. Why? Because instead of just guessing what code is deployed, you can actually verify it.

If you use program in Java, and don't use a decompiler to help debug stuff, then you are probably missing out (or, really lucky to not need it!).

Mark - my guess is that Eclipse already does this decompiling for you. Right?
