Dear All

How could I secure my class files/jar files from de-compile.

Can any one tell me what is the procedure.

You can't really do a whole lot to protect your JAR files and class files from being decompiled. About the only thing to do is Obfuscate the bytecode so even if it is decompiled, it won't make much sense. I linked to the first one I ran across on google. There are many many more choices out there for obfuscating bytecode.
