decompile class file using javap , java class file disassembler

javap command disassembles java class files. Its output depends on the options used. If no options are used, javap prints out the package, protected, and public fields and methods of the classes passed to it. javap prints its output to stdout.

here is the class we test compile the following class:-


public class Add  {

 public static void main(String[] args) {
  new Add().totalValue(5 , 6);

 private void totalValue(int i, int j) {
   System.out.println("Add two value");
   System.out.println("[-------Sum of two value ----------"+(i+j)+"------]");


run javap Add following attribute , method shown:-

C:Desktop Arun> javap Add
Compiled from ""
public class extends java.lang.Object{
    public static void main(java.lang.String[]);

run javap -c Add command following byte-code are shown :-

Compiled from ""
public class extends java.lang.Object{
   0: aload_0
   1: invokespecial #8; //Method java/lang/Object."":()V
   4: return

public static void main(java.lang.String[]);
   0: new #1; //class com/javastoreroom/net/Add
   3: dup
   4: invokespecial #16; //Method "":()V
   7: iconst_5
   8: bipush 6
   10: invokespecial #17; //Method totalValue:(II)V
   13: return


Try another option just type command javap -help following command shown :-
Usage: javap  ...

where options include:
-c                        Disassemble the code
-classpath      Specify where to find user class files
-extdirs            Override location of installed extensions
-help                     Print this usage message
-J                  Pass  directly to the runtime system
-l                        Print line number and local variable tables
