I've atached jad.tar.gz containing jad-1.5.8e.ebuild.
Jad is a very fast and usefull java decompiler. You can check out the homepage
Jad is free for non-commercial use but the author does not provide source, so
I've got the ebuild pointing toward the opt directory.
If you decide to include this in portage I'd suggest dev-java/jad

jad.1.5.8e.ebuild (new ebuild)
Is there any reason why we cannot include a Free decompiler instead ? Is there
any reason why Jad is considerably better than its Free counterparts, such as:
I have not used any of these (looked at JODE once), that's why I ask.
We prefer Free Software if it exists.
"jrevpro" looks like it is still in a beta or pre-beta stage.
"jode" is useful and produces nice code but is reliant upon many things being
available in the classpath which can be a pain to set up.
I use "jad" on a regular basis and it always produces clean compileable code
with minimal hassle. It is not reliant upon classpath issues like "jode" and has
reliably decompiled every class file I've ever fed it.
I'm sure it doesn't hurt to give people to use non-free software even if there
are similar Free programs unless your concerned about licensing/accountability
