You write code in java and make it a class file....but when you sell ur software to others ...do you distribute the classfiles or some other things ???If you distribute the classfiles then its easy for the user to decompile the classfiles into sourcecode....I mean how do u maintain the security for the source...

You can protect your source code through a process called Obfuscatoion. Number of free Obfuscators are available in the net. Plase search in the net for more details and Obfuscatoin techniques.

It's a common problem. Decompilers are pretty good. Obfuscators will slow somebody down, but don't count on keeping a proprietary algorithm secret from hackers or competitors that way.
A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
