Need the VM signature of a method?

I am trying to profile an EJB method using Netbeans profiler.

However I don't have sources for the EJB so I need the methods VM signature.

How can I get this. Do I need to decompile the EJB.

I am not a guru of EJB, but in my opinion, in order to profile an application you dont need to have original source codes of application. Byte codes are enough for profiling. A good profiler can show method call traces of profiled application by using compiled sources.
I think you missed something. If you have enough time, please try jprofiler.
