Blackberry Reverse Engineering - Extracting java files from cod files

I want to know whether one can extract Blackberry .java files from .cod files ?? Is it possible ?

If Yes .How and what are the steps ?

And if no ? why ? As that would mean the security breach of the blackberry device application ?

Re: Blackberry Reverse Engineering - Extracting java files from cod files

i cannot give a definitve answer to that.
there is/was a cod decompiler, but i don't know anybody who used it successfully to decompile a complex program.
i gave it some hours try and never succeeded.

even if you would be able to decompile a program you would be a good step away from stealing any of it, but if you are concerned you can use additional obfuscation layers or whatever.

personally i doubt that anybody would gain something by using the decompilation approach, and my experience shows that whatever decompiler exists is not working properly.
