For 7 days I'm getting message "Plugin Update" after each Eclipse restart. The only options are "Not not" and "Continue". I'm maintaining shared instance of Eclipse IDE for c.a. 50 programmers and everybody get this message too.
Automatic updates are disabled, despite that, the update dialog appears. I would like to have control of the updates of plugins and I don't know how to get rid of this dialog. Later I can update it on my own for my team in the new version of our IDE, but now it is annoying.
Moreover, it does not look like other update-dialogs in Eclipse.

Full dialog text:
"Eclipse Class Decompiler plugin update is available for your eclipse. Do you want to download and install it?"

Eclipse version: Mars 4.5.2
Old Eclipse Class Decompiler version: 2.9.0.r20160620180
New Eclipse Class Decompiler version: 3.0.0

What can I do to disable this dialog?

Not sure it will help you : but you should go to Preferences then look for Decompiler (under Java), and look for the checkbox at the end of the tab: there is a "check for major updates" checkbox that you should uncheck.

I was bored of hundred of new editors. Disinstalled. Used a less performance, less configurable, but usable plugin (JD-Eclipse Plug-In)

I also have the probem that each time I step in the debugger, a new tab is opened.
Additionally the debugger alsways seems to be at line 0/1. And stepping not really works at all.
Furthermore most of the time breakpoints are not settable. Sometimes not at all, sometimes they simply don't appear in the editor sidebar but are in the breakpoints view. And sometimes the debugger breaks, though the breakpoints are already removed.

I desperately need this to work with my "beloved" framework SAP Hybris .... :-\

Please update the latest version, thanks.

Update site is not working for about a week. Please fix it at the earliest.

lmenci's picture

I don't know if I bad setted the preferences or something else, but every debug steps into classes without source, eclipse opens a new window of the decompiled class, pointing into the first row of the file, ignoring that there are already opened windows of the same class.

I tried to set/unset Decompiler -> Debug mode, Decompiler -> Preferences -> Reuse code buffer and Align code for debugging

I will install this plugin in a Eclipse Mars installation.
I add the update site URL: .../decompiler/update/
But the installation failed with error:
An error occurred while collecting items to be installed
session context was:(, phase=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.engine.phases.Collect, operand=, action=).
Artifact not found: .../update/plugins/org.sf.feeling.decompiler_2.9.0.r20160620180.jar.

I think the plugins folder lost.
In the GitHUB repository the folder lost, too:

Can you please consider to have a user preferences to opt-out the phone home analytical request in the plugin?

Updated a new version, only reserved os_name, os_arch, os_version, user_country, java_version, eclipse_product, eclipse_version, decompiler_version, decompile_count now.

cchao's picture

I will remove the redundant information at next version, only reserve the information about OS version, eclipse product version and java version.

Please uninstall the old version decompiler, then install the new version decompiler.

I have exactly the same problem with a new downloaded eclipse and a fresh workspace?
How can this problem be solved?

Thank you.

I cannot install this feature in my eclipse:

Eclipse Mars.1 Release (4.5.1)
Build id: 20150924-1200

I get this error: No repository found at

rmisingnameit6's picture

When I try to install it I get the error: No repository found at...

Also, if I write the repository's url from my browser I get a 404 ERROR

ebaycelik's picture

Because of my security concerns i prefer to install

ebaycelik's picture

It is working fine with Version: Mars Release (4.5.0) Build id: 20150621-1200 and Windws 7. But i have same concerns @pre mt mentioned. What about security of this implementation?

glebec's picture

Hello, the tool says me that the plugin is not compatible with Mars version of Eclipse when I drag and drop it.
And it's not available in the market place directly accessible via eclipse (I only can see it on Market place via web browser)...

msteurer's picture

It does work if you right click on the class file in the package explorer and then say "Open Class With", either JD-Core or Jad is fine then. So it seems there only is an error with linking class files to the decompile-editor, which still obstructs the workflow.

msteurer's picture

Really good until Mars, but now it doesn't work anymore. Looks like it depends on internal code that has changed, I get this stacktrace on Mars.1:

Please update the latest version eclipse class decompiler plugin, thanks. It support eclipse mars now.

It doesn't seem to be compatibile with mars + osx yosemite, I have it perfectly working in luna + osx yosemite.

I was getting, crash with message:
# Problematic frame:
# C [] wxStringData::Unlock()+0x0
# The crash happened outside the Java Virtual Machine in native code.

If you expand your jar file it should work. It is possible to have issue with larger jar files.

Thanks for your work. When I try to install by dragging the "Install" button to my Eclipse Luna instance I get a NullPointerException and it won't install.

Also, it would be easier to contribute if you move the code/hosting to github. Sourceforge is a dying platform (they are always down, inserting spyware in downloads, etc).

gvenegas's picture

Were you able to fix this? I am also getting the same exception when trying to install

pjagielski36w's picture

I was never able to install it. I used Java Decompiler instead:

Hi does this have malicious code ? Installation of this plugin asks to accept certificate ChenChao. Does accepting the certificate result in sending user info, usage stats to ChenChao.

Have anyone seen/reviewed the code is safe and does not have backdoors?

pjagielski36w's picture

Accepting the certificate won't cause any network traffic, just let the install continue. The source code is on sourceforge if you want to look at it.
