Why would you want to do that? If you got someone else's .jar without the source code, than you're surely not intended to see or use it.

No, that information is no longer in the class file.

You can deobfuscate an obfuscated jar file manually. Unfortunately, you need a mind of a Vulcan to do it. So, until humanity discovers space travel, gets in contact with an alien race of superior intellect, that doesn't want to exterminate us, NO!

I'd suggest you read a) their EULA and b) their documentation. Often, the EULA says that it is a violation to try and reverse engineer their code. Their documentation should tell you all you need to know.

Method names (and arg types) are present in the classfiles.

It's true, the method names are in the class files. But after the obfuscator gets through with its task of renaming method "getLastPayrollPeriod" to "d", all you have in the class files is "d" and "getLastPayrollPeriod" is nowhere to be found.

Vinoth is asking about human-comprehensible names (e.g., the original ones). In an obfuscated class, that information is not present.

If you know the obfuscation tool used (e.g. ZKM), you can use byte code engineering (ASM/BCEL) to deob it (in ZKM's case, fix the flow control). If you don't know the method used, you can analyze it, and more times than not, it will be using a popular obfuscation tool.
