Are you asking how to convert compiled Java class files back into Java source files? If so then I have used a tool named Jad for this. I am sure there are several such tools out there.

Here again, the trick is getting the right tool. IBM's Rational Application Developer (Expensive) and Rational Software Architect (Absurdly Expensive) will to this. There are probably some less expensive tools out there that will do this as well.
