Covert Java: Techniques for Decompiling, Patching, and Reverse Engineering

A couple of years ago I walked into a coworkers office and noticed a shelf full of about two dozen Java books. I was a bit surprised since this coworker (Bob) was a Fortran compiler engineer and didn't have much to do with Java. It turns out that when Java was introduced, Bob decided to buy every single Java book that came out. Obviously this didn't last very long. Today you can walk into practically any bookstore and pick through a selection of hundreds of Java related books. Yet, even with this glut of Java material, there are not many books about Java Internals or debugging Java programs at the runtime level. The newly published book by Alex Kalinosvky, "Covert Java: Techniques for Decompiling, Patching, and Reverse Engineering" attempts to delve into the backend and internals of Java programs.

Kalinovskys book consists of roughly 225 pages of content, is published by SAMS and retails for $29.99. I paid $24.95 or somewhere in that range. I'll try to go through most of the chapters and review them individually. [full book review here]
