Back when I was at university (many years ago) I heard people talk about Mocha, a Java decompiler. I never used it, as it wasn't much help when you're supposed to write code from scratch, but it seemed to have a good reputation. This morning Joe called me asking if I knew of any good tools for decompiling Java as he's testing an application that appears to be Java based. I thought of Mocha, but decided to look it up as I hadn't heard people talk about it recently, and there are probably better tools around by now. This took me here, where I sadly discovered that the author - Hanpeter van Vliet - died from cancer at the ridiculously young age of 34. I shall now dedicate the mocha I'm coincidentally drinking this morning to his memory.
