The tools you are looking for are called "decompilers". So try a web search with the key words "java decompiler".

And don't expect the output of a decompiler to be the exact source code used to create the .class file in the first place. You will just get some source code that works.

Hi, I use cavaj, is fairly good and free. You can look for it on google, is like 95-99% reliable.

JODE is an excellent one. Reliability is very high.
