Solution Description

JadClipse is a plug-in that seamlessly integrates Jad (the fast Java decompiler) with Eclipse.

Normally, when opening a class file the Class File Viewer will show a brief API outline of the class. If you install this plug-in, however, the Class File Viewer will be replaced with the JadClipse Class File Viewer that shows the decompiled source of the class. This task is accomplished by decompiling the corresponding class file in the background using Jad. Normal Java syntax highlighting as well as the Outline View are supported.

The jadclipse 3.3.0 doesn't work properly with eclipse oxygen 4.7.1.

  • I downloaded eclipse oxygen(4.7.1) and install JADClipse 3.3.0.jar by link
  • I associate *.class with/without source to JadClipse View in FileAssociation which means the eclipse can find jadclipse plugin
  • I open a .class in jar, first time it shows as original class view of eclipse. I could not refresh original class view window by click jad icon in toolbar and menu bar.
  • I close the class file and reopen it. Then I can see the jadclipse compiled fine in file tabs.

Excellent plugin.. setup done in less than 5 mins and turning out to be really helpful...

Works great during debug session as well as dont have to attach source files anymore :)

Hi, I tried configure JadClipse with Eclipse Juno but it does not decompile the class files. I have configured JAD as my default decompiler and also changed jadClipse class editor as default editor for class files. (Preference--> General --> Editors --> File Association).
Please confirm if jadClipse is compatible with Eclipse Juno or if there is any configuration I'm missing.

Thanks in advance!

Hi - didn't know where else to report this: JadClipse's entry in the Eclipse marketplace does not seem to work!
I am using Eclipse 4.2 (Juno) and searched for JadClipse in the Eclipse marketplace. I found the entry, but the link on that entry does not work. The URL shown after clicking the green down-arrow on this eclipse website finally did the trick (when added as new update site).

Cool and useful plugin.

I used it some time ago and it was helpful, then I updated to newer eclipse versions and the plugin kept throwing exceptions and interfeared with call hierarchy and stuff, so I uninstalled it for a while. Now I tried it again and it works as expected so far.
