Hi,
I just want to know whether Java decompiling is going to be huge in the future or has it already become huge. Are there any major projects going on in this field, what is the benifit of having decompilers.
Thank you in advance..

I find JAD very handy to understand some code that was shipped to us without source.


A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
