Thread: applet security

    applet security


    I wrote an applet and now want to prevent from downloading some important .class files (loading them from server at runtime) or hide some functions (e.g. call method from server at runtime). Is it possible?

    If the user's computer is going to execute the applet, it needs to be able to interpret the .class files. It needs to be able to access them and someone can easily reverse engineer the code.

    You might try an obscuficator or something to mess with the source so it would be hard to read when downloaded.

    However, in the end, whatever machine executing it is going to need access to it.

    Yes I agree. As long as a computer can access and read something, it is always vulnerable to be copied or reversed engineered
