Keep in mind that this is often illegal. E.g., the license for the JDK forbids this. Of course, the JDK class library comes with its own source in a file called "src.zip", so this isn't even necessary.
If it's third-party drivers, then there, too, it shouldn't be necessary. Either they're open source (in which case it's easier to just look at the source), or they're commercial, in which case the license forbids decompilation. [ June 26, 2007: Message edited by: Ulf Dittmer ]

Thanks for this information.I was unaware that some license might forbid decompilation.
