I doubt it. Why would they bother designing an authentication protocol when the jars are served over HTTP? HTTP already has an authentication protocol you can use.

The jar files could be easily converted to java code word by word using reverse engineering tool. Would not want legacy code to be accessible to wrong minds..
Java is not offering inherent capabality to obfuscate code to such a level where reverse engineering is not possible.. We have to use opensource tool..
If we want to distribute code as native OS lets say windows system. There also Java is not providing any inherent facility.
Designers can sit with leisure thinking why on earth people would want to obfuscate their code or distribute native code for Windows.
Java is for platform independence. But what if i want to make my application available only on windows and Mac.
I would want to distribute applications in windows way in windows and Mac way in Mac.
Whole point... Java Designer asking Why would some one want it .. is invalid question.. Need to bring JAVA close to Rapid Application Designing Tool..
