Hi,
I have a java application that is packaged as an exe file with the JRE. Is there a way to extract the class files or to see what happens in the jvm during execution ?

Does the utility that packaged the java program explain how to to it?
That would be the first place to look.
When in doubt, read the doc.

That's the problem, I don't know wich utility packaged the java application. So I have no doc and no start point.

Any ideas ?

Look at the file with a hex editor. Maybe you'll see something that you'll recognize. Java class files begin with the hex string: cafebabe
