I am the founder and CEO of Data Geekery GmbH, located in Zurich, Switzerland. With our company, we have been selling database products and services around Java and SQL since 2013. Ever since my Master's studies at EPFL in 2006, I have been fascinated by the interaction of Java and SQL. Most of this experience I have obtained in the Swiss E-Banking field through various variants (JDBC, Hibernate, mostly with Oracle). I am happy to share this knowledge at various conferences, JUGs, in-house presentations and on our blog. Lukas is a DZone MVB and is not an employee of DZone and has posted 241 posts at DZone.

JDEclipse: A must-have Java Decompiler

I have recently discovered this new, must-have Eclipse plugin, which is very useful for those third-party libraries whose source-code you can’t easily find or link into your Eclipse: JDEclipse.

It doesn’t only decompile byte code into Java code, it does so extremely well, keeping line numbers at the correct place, such that you can actually debug through the decompiled source code and set breakpoints that actually work.

Note that of course you shouldn’t decompile any code whose license doesn’t allow you to do so…
