Introduction =============================== Hi; I am Brad Davis, and I am the creator of JBoss Cake. JBoss Cake is a tool to assist developers in migrating platforms from closed, proprietary systems to open source. Cake had the need for an open source decompiler. Candle is an open source decompiler I have created on my own time; it is far from complete. This is where that work will be developed over the next few months. Once we have a viable open source deompiler, the public beta of JBoss Cake will follow. Currently, the state of the decompiler is that it only decompiles a subset of the JVM operations; if you are looking for a decompiler, please check out the many closed options at this point. Candle Decompiler has a long way to go to catch up with these fine tools, and this is more of a testing ground than anything at this point. Follow the action at: @bradsdavis and @jbosscake !! Open Source Alternative Decompilers === * Krakatau - https://github.com/Storyyeller/Krakatau * Procyon - https://bitbucket.org/mstrobel/procyon/wiki/Java%20Decompiler Closed Source Alternative Decompilers ===================================== * Fernflower * Java Decompiler - http://java.decompiler.free.fr/ * JAD Contributing to Candle Decompiler ================================== Please consider contributing to the project if you are interested in decompilation. The flow control is implemented in BlockVisitor currently, and is missing a lot of logic right now. Intermediate Code assembly occurs within IntermediateVisitor. To contribute back to the code, please issue a pull-request against the project. Special thanks to the following: ================================= Apache BCEL - http://commons.apache.org/bcel/ ================== Leveraging BCEL to parse the Java class and walk the assembly code. JReversePro Team ================== Great resource for getting to know decompilers. Karthik Kumar, thanks for open sourcing! Java Virtual Machine, by Jon Meyer and Troy Downing ================== Good book & online resource for understanding the JVM stack & operations. James Hamilton - http://jameshamilton.eu/ ================== Provides some really helpful online samples of code -> assembly. Wikipedia - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Java_syntax, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Java_bytecode_instruction_listings ================== Great source of information related to JVM instructions.
