    Default How to properly protect your Java code

    For a Java developer, it is not always evident to protect the code because it is easy to decompile with all the tools available on the internet. Recently I was looking for a tool that would allow me to properly protect the code of my web applications, because I had to provide a backup copy of my application to a client.

    I have looked at obfuscation, but this is not always the ideal solution for a web application. Changing the name of the methods can affect in most cases the proper functionality of the application.

    I finally discovered Excelsior JET , a software that protects my code, compile my application into a native executable for Windows or Linux. It can also compile my web application with Tomcat into an executable and then create an installer for the client. Moreover, the compilation to native code produces more efficient machine code . I tested this software for a fairly complex web application that I have created and I was pleasantly surprised with the results . Excelsior JET was easy to use and everything worked efficiently and without any problems from the first use , which is not the case of all the software I 've tried . So now my code is protected, my application is optimized and the client has the ability to do the installation if needed. Excelsior JET can compile Java SE applications , applications of Eclipse , Tomcat Web application and more. Furthermore, the code is as difficult to reverse engineer as if it was written in C++. If you want to protect your code effectively , I highly recommend it. There is a free version available for authors of free, non-commercial Java applications.

    No this is not a spam. The blog at guylap.wordpress.com is just a test... I am looking for a place to start blogging about my experiences and some other reviews and codes etc....
    I am a certified java web component developer by sun's and I want to start sharing.
    This is my latest experience and I was please with this software. If I had known about this software before it would have saved me a lot of time.
    This might also help others.

    Thanks for your comprehension.

    You might want to work on your presentation then. The way you've presented your, uh, findings, looks a lot like a post from a spam bot. The only reason I didn't ban you outright is because the link you're spamming seems to be a valid link.
