JD-Core-java is a thin-wrapper for the Java Decompiler.
This is hack around the IntelliJ IDE plugin. It fakes the interfaces of the IDE, and provides access to JD-Core.
Since the Author of JD-Core is not willing to provide a library, and we all want to batch decompilation, this is pretty much our only option.
I hope this will motivate the author to release a proper library: https://github.com/java-decompiler/jd-core

This will download the necessary native libraries from the JD Intellij
repository on Bitbucket, compile the wrapper code, and generate a jar file
containing both in the
This is a self-contained jar that you may include in your own Java project, or alternatively you may run it from the command line.
/* Returns the source of SomeClass from compiled.jar as a String */ new jd.core.Decompiler().decompileClass("compiled.jar", "com/namespace/SomeClass.class"); /* * Returns the sources of all the classes in compiled.jar as a Map<String, String> * where the key is the class name (full path) and the value is the source */ new jd.core.Decompiler().decompile("compiled.jar"); /* * Returns the number of classes decompiled and saved into out_dir */ new jd.core.Decompiler().decompileToDir("compiled.jar", "out_dir");
From the command line:
# Outputs all the sources of compiled.jar into out_dir java -jar jd-core-java-1.2.jar [options] <compiled.jar> [<destination>] Options: -z - save sources into a zip file -n - add line numbers into sources; (false by default) -r - not realign line numbers (true by default)
