SAL Home PROGRAM Languages & Compilers


Jad is a Java decompiler, i.e. program that reads one or more Java class files and converts them into Java source files which can be compiled again.

Jad is 100% pure C++ program and it generally works several times faster than decompilers written in Java. Also Jad doesn't use the Java runtime for its functioning, therefore no special setup (like changes to CLASSPATH variable) is required.
