java Obfuscator

Recommended Posts

Hi;

I search a method Java Obfuscator scrambles Java source code to make it very difficult to understand or reverse-engineer.

I have tested the following tools but the logic code is readable : RetroGuard; ProGuard  et yGuard.

Another option : If you know that your application will run on only one platform (Mac, Unix, Windows, etc.), then you could compile your source all the way to native code. It would then be as obfuscated as standard C code.

Have you any suggestion ?

regards;

Unfortunately, for application servers the situation differ. The server and applications still can be compiled with JET (see this Knowledge Base article, but the applications classes (.war etc.) still have to be deployed, because custom clasloaders are used. So, there is no protection of applications classes in this case.

You may consider moving your applications to 'shared' part of the server, in this case it is safe to remove the classes from the deployment package.
