Obfuscation is claimed to be useful when you have to distribute your java byte code to a user and don't want them to steal your intellectual property.

If you implement your java on a web services, you don't have to distribute your Java's bytecode to anyone, so you do not need obfuscation.

It is much easier to keep people from stealing stuff if you never give it to them.

I personally think obfuscation is nearly worthless, but the vendors claim otherwise.

What, exactly, have you tried, and what, exactly, was the result?

import java.util.Vector;

public class Hello
{

public Hello()
{
}

public static void main(String args[])
{
Vector vector = new Vector();
vector.add("500");
vector.add("745");
vector.add("842");
vector.add("900");
vector.add("567");
Object obj = Collections.max(vector);
System.out.println("Maximum Element of Java Vector is : " + obj);
}
}

What have you tried? Post the command-line invocations of ProGuard that you have used (or the Ant task and/or the parameter file, whichever is applicable).

basvaraj, you will have to change your attitude. This will no take you anywhere. You haven't shown the obfuscation process ..

You seem to confuse a request for more information with discouragement. If you don't provide necessary information about your problem, then people will not be able to help you. You'll notice that you have been asked multiple times to TellTheDetails, but you haven't done so, and also have not solved your problem - there's a connection here.

he is thinking that nothing i know

I have honestly no idea how you came to that conclusion; it's in any case incorrect.

you also do not know anything

If you had used the search functionality of this forum, you'd have discovered that I actually do know quite a bit about ProGuard, which is why I tried to help you. Your attitude doesn't motivate me to continue to do so, though.
