Hi,

I need to programatically check if a given .jar file is obfuscated or not
Can anybody tell me if there are ANY Java APIs available to do this?

Thanks in advance

Cheers
JT

Hi,

Welcome to JavaRanch!

First, a bit of business: you may not have read our naming policy on the way in. It requires that you use a full, real (sounding) first and last name for your display name. Joke names and "handles" aren't acceptable here. You can change your display name here. Thanks!

As for the answer to your question: no, not really. Why would you want this, anyway? Sounds like trouble to me.

Don't think so. How could it tell the difference between an obfuscated class, and one where the developer has made countless poor choices naming variables and objects?

(By the way, your screen name is going to get you in trouble)
