Subject Code obfuscation taskdef
Date Mon, 10 Apr 2000 04:57:46 GMT
I'm sorry if this has already been discussed... I just joined the Ant 
mailing list (wishing there was a web based archive of messages), but I 
wanted to see if there was any interest in developing a code obfuscation 
taskdef for Ant (and if anyone was already working on this).  I was 
thinking of using something like JAX (100% pure java, from alphaworks) 
which removes unnecessary methods, and renames methods to very short 
names, all which should compress the code, making it quicker to download 
and execute, and harder to decompile.

Also, are there other code obfuscators (preferably open source) that 
people here would recommend?  I think this tool would be very useful for 
people using Ant to generate applets.  Thanks.
