I am making the client side of a chat server. Is there any way that I can make my jar files unable to be decompiled so that they are not stolen.

No... There are programs that make decompiled files harder to read by humans, but you cannot make it impossible to decompile them... do a search for "Java code obfuscator" in any reputable search engine to find one...

Hi manoj,
Try retroguard
this is a free and really good obfuscator.
