JBC is an eclipse plugin that enables the developer to view and edit files containing java byte code (*.class) inside eclipse. This is done in a way such that a specialized editor opens the .class file and displays the binary code as a textual DSL whereas keywords intersparse the byte sequences. Changing the text and saving then writes back the bytes to the .class file.

The source code can be found in github:

Users needs to add Xtext release update site first in Help -> Install, [Manage], [Add]

And then install as usual plugin.
The reason is that Eclispe cannot find required XText, when it has no URL with update site for XText

Updated (composite) update site will be available soon. External update site is then not necessary any more (starting with JBC 1.2.1. Thank you for the hint.
