Hi All,
I am creating a MyApp.exe of my application but the problem is when i installed it on double clicking it, it is automatically creating jar which we have to double click to open a application,it is simple swing based application,but i want to know it can be easily be reverse engineering by anyone ,any one can convert this class file into .java file .Where is the security here in java?
