This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
Sorry if this is the wrong section, I didn't know where to post it.
I'm trying to obfuscate my jar files using ProGuard 4.8 to protect my source from being easily read, but each time I try, I'm getting an error.
Once I got this error, I tried using a different jar file with different classes, and it worked. It said the process had been completed and my output jar file was exactly where I specified. When I extracted the classes though, I noticed that nothing was obfuscated and everything was readable if decompiled.
Could someone please tell me how I'd go about successful obfuscation? Thanks in advance.
After some poking around on the Proguard home page, I noticed that they have used the model "Release the code free, and charge for support". So if you are desperate for support, here's the place to go: Professional ProGuard Support.
Or if you want to look at alternatives, the Proguard page links to them too: Alternatives.
