Enhanced Class Decompiler integrates JD, Jad, FernFlower, CFR, Procyon seamlessly with Eclipse and allows Java developers to debug class files without source code directly. It also integrates with the eclipse class editor, m2e plugin, supports Javadoc, reference search, library source attaching, byte code view and the syntax of JDK8 lambda expression.
It is based on the popular (delisted) "Eclipse Class Decompiler" Plugin, but members of the open-source community enhanced it by removing all code which might compromise your privacy or security (i.e. everything discussed in https://0x10f8.wordpress.com/2017/08/07/reverse-engineering-an-eclipse-p... and everything else which seemed suspicious) to bring back the great core plugin functionality to all Eclipse users.

When stepping into stacks which doesn't have source code the decompiler editor is not opened for those class files. Instead the "no source found" editor page is shown on Eclipse 4.14 and 4.15.

I'm fighting with the issue for long time, and can't find the solution.
I just did the clean Eclipse 2019-09 installation and added ECD to it. Even though the flag "Set Class Decompiler Viewer as the Default 'Java Class File' content type editor" is set looks it doesn't have any effect.
Yes, I can go to "File Associations" and set Decompiler Viewer for both "*.class" and "*.class without the source" file types, and it works but only temporary till the next restart.
After I restart Eclipse it sets the OOTB Class File Viewer for both *.class types.
Any idea how to fix it? I tried all possible combinations, created new workspaces and etc. - nothing helped. the same issue happened with the older Eclipse versions as well
It is annoying to manually associate types each time I restarted Eclipse.

A fresh install of 2019 09 but the context menu entry for opening any decompiler is disabled for any .class file.
Enabling Decompiler on main menu let open a .clas file with a decompiler, but the editor crashes with an error.

It works fine with Eclipse 2019 09. Decompiler version: 188.8.131.52811062102 .Eclipse: Version: 2019-09 R (4.13.0) Build id: 20190917-1200. I'm using FernFlower decompiler, but I'm sure others will work as well.
The only problem I can't solve is to permanently set "Class Decompiler Viewer" for *.class associations. After I set it the decompiler works fine, but after the restart Eclipse restores "Class File Viewer" as default association for *.class. I tried multiple different steps to update the class default association, but after each start Eclipse restores it to the "Class File Viewer", and I don't know how to prevent it from doing it. Any advice will be appreciated (note in decompiler settings I have the Startup flag checked to set the Decompiler as default viewer - it doesn't help)

I have the same combination of versions here regarding Eclipse (for committers) and the ECD plugin. While I can see the ECD settings in the overall Preferences dialog (Window / Preferences), I cannot see the menu items for displaying decompiled class files or attaching sources fetched online. The plugin has turned useless for me with 2019-09. Any advice?

This tool was great until I moved to Eclipse 2019-06. Now I get these 2 errors, which are proving a real pain in working with libraries :(
The public type <type> must be defined in its own file ( less frequent )

In general, this plugin is satisfying, and the feature to automatically show Maven sources instead of decompiling is great. However there's one annoying thing about it: the plugin actually saves the attached sources path in the native Eclipse project configuration. This is bad for version control, please don't do that
Instead, supply the source code through the same channel the plugin supplies the decompilation result. Again, the feature is great and I don't want to disable it.

This works great for opening and reading .class files! But is there any way to use Call Hierarchy on functions in .class files? When I try, it can never find anything.

Does this work on 2018-09 (4.9)? I tried all instructions and install/restart multiple times. It does not work. It used to work on neon.

Ignore this. All I had to do was make sure there I configure default editor for .class files.
Submitted by Pavel Kouzmitcheu on Thu, 2019-10-31 16:16
Does this setting remain for you after the restart? I tried different versions of Eclipse, and each restart it restores the default association for .class to Class File Viewer

I just read through the interesting blog about how this plugin came into picture and I am excited to use this plugin on my eclipse. But somehow it doesn't decompile. It was installed without a problem but it doesn't show up under Java in Preferences(as in Screenshot).
What is wrong here?

This tool really works. I manage to save an old project (written on java 8). Thanks! It read also lambda expressions without problem.
By the way I use Oxygen.3a Release (4.7.3a).

Class decompiler not working. Could anyone help on this.
Submitted by Vasil Panushev on Thu, 2017-11-23 04:58
Works fine when opening a .class file from the project tree.
But when I'm debugging an application and reach a file for which I don't have a source, the decompiler editor is not opened. Instead I see a "Source not found." editor with "Edit Source Lookup Path.." button.
.class and .class without source are associated with the Class Decompiler Viewer as suggested in the documentation.
Any setting that I missed.

I cannot reach the repository either with the same error message. Navigating with a browser takes me to a 403 page.

This is a misleading error message from eclipse and is usually triggered by a errornous network configuration - in fact, in can be any network problem.
Did you check if you need a proxy configured in Eclipse? If the problem persist, navigate manually to https://ecd-plugin.github.io/update/ download the jar files and place them in the features and plugins folde rof your eclipse installation.

There is no problem with the ECD installation. However the option "Window | Preferences | Jave | Decompiler" is missing / not shown; and jar decompilation is not working

Thank you for your feedback. Did you try to install ECD on a clean Eclipse, and are the ECD features listed in the About dialog?

As stated on https://github.com/ecd-plugin/ecd/issues/17, the problem was fixed by removing any old EclipseCD leftovers and reinstalling the extension.
