Source code security issue

Hello guys'

 

I have a question related coding security. So, I know anyone can create .java file from .jar or .class file.

And my question : 

 

Is it possible to create .java file from .cod file? I think the best solution to save source code is using secure obfuscator.

Do you use the Java obfuscator ? What obfuscator is the best ?

 

Please share your knowledge with me' guys

 

Tnx'
