In others experience,what are the best decompilers and deobsfucators ?
I've used JAD a lot. And it works well in most cases.
I've tried an evaluation version of NMI's Java Code Viewer
(http://njcv.htmlplanet.com/) and found it dealt better with inner classes
that I ran into problems with JAD.
With these tools I decompiled a project of about 2-3Mb source and was able
to recompile and use again (complex applet in a browser) after some
tweaking. It broke on some casting issue for example.
