Hi All,

I am trying to use jadclipse 3.3.0 with eclipse 3.4.1, but it is not working (earlier I tried to use it with eclipse 3.3 as well but was getting the same behavior).

Following is my configuration (Windows XP):
  • Jadclipse - 3.3.0
  • Jad - 1.5.8g
  • Eclipse - 3.4.1
  • Java - 1.5.0_03-b07

  • I have followed installation steps as below, but whenever I try to open a .class file, it is opened by Eclipse default class file editor and not by jadclipse showing source code.

    1. I installed jadclipse using update site -
    2. I restarted eclipse, using eclipse -clean from command prompt.
    3. I configured jadeclipse - set path (screenshot attached).
    4. I added jar, classes to be decompiled to project's classpath.
    5. Also added jad executable to windows environment path.

    But nothing seems to work for me.

    Please help me in resolving this issue.

    If I [CTRL] + left click on a class name in jar file then jadclipse opens it. But if I double-click .class file in navigator OR during debugging file is opened by Default class file editor.

    Hi Ajay,

    Jadclipse 3.3.0 still works in my Ganymede, so it should be possible to get it working.

    Could you try the following? (from

    Problem: The Eclipse Class File Viewer instead of the JadClipse Class File Viewer is opened.
    Go to Window > Preferences... > General > Editors > File Associations and make sure that the JadClipse Class File Viewer has the default file association for *.class files.

    For me it looks like the attached picture.

    Good luck!

    Hi Ivor,

    Thanks for your reply.

    I went through your reply and link that you provided.

    My .class file association is correct, I have jadclipse as default editor, just like snapshot provided by you.

    My all configuration pieces are correct, like path to jadclipse exe, .class file association. But still it doesn't work.

    I guess I am missing something else but can't figure it out.

    Ivor, thanks for your help.

    Thanks & Regards,
