With JustDecompile, Telerik's free .NET decompiler, you can easily recover lost source code or peer into assemblies to discover the root cause of an external bug. The same engine that powers JustDecompile is also used in Telerik JustCode, a Visual Studio add-in designed to enhance developer productivity. In this webcast, you will learn how to use JustDecompile and JustCode for decompilation scenarios you are likely to encounter in the office.

AgendaPart 1 - DiscussionPart 2 - ProductsWhat is a Decompiler?JustDecompile StandAloneLegality DemoPrevention JustCode Visual StudioCommon Scenarios Demo BonusPart 3Q&A 5. What is a Decompiler?Removing some misconceptions 6. DecompilerPerforms the reverse operation of a compilerTranslates assemblies back into source codeSource code produced is a representation, not the original 7. It is not ReflectionReflection allows you to observe and modify a programsstructure and behavior at runtimeUsed to inspect types and members without knowing names atcompile timeAllows for instantiation and method invocation without hard-coding names 8. It is not DisassemblingDisassemblers translate machine code to assembly languageIn .NET, translating byte code to common intermediate language(CIL) can be considered disassemblyThis is one step in the decompilation processildasm.exe is an example of a .NET disassembler 9. LegalityWarning: I am not a lawyer 10. CopyrightMost software is covered by copyright lawsCopyright owners have exclusive rights to make copiesDecompilation can be necessary, and it is allowed in the US andEurope with some limitationsIf there are any doubts, consult a lawyer in your jurisdiction 11. United States"where disassembly is the only way to gainaccess to the ideas and functional elementsembodied in a copyrighted computer programand where there is legitimate reason for seekingsuch access, disassembly is a fair use of thecopyrighted work, as a matter of law." -Sega v. Accolade 12. EuropeCovered under the 1991 Software Directive, Article 6 Must have a license to the program Must be necessary for software interoperability Must be confined to relevant elements for interoperability Information obtained may not be used for other purposes orshared 13. Bottom LineHave a good reasonCheck the laws for where you liveBe good 14. PreventionHow to keep your software safe 15. Nothings 100%If it was designed to run, the means by which it runs can beobtainedThese techniques will only stop the casual reverse-engineer andthe curious 16. Provide Good DocumentationProvide documentation essential for interoperabilityPrevent bugs: test thoroughlyThese steps will provide legal cover in some jurisdictions 17. ObfuscationMakes it difficult to decompile by making output unreadableUse an obfuscator : 18. Common ScenariosWhy people legitimately use decompilers 19. InteroperabilityThis usage is to determine how to make an assembly work withanother assembly or hardwareOptimizing for performance 20. Fix or Workaround BugA bug is creating issues, and theres no fix available from thevendor 21. Recover Lost Source CodeEveryone uses version control, right?A developer left and the source cant be found 22. Out of BusinessThe vendor of a necessary system component has gone out ofbusinessNo updates coming and they are necessary 23. Language TranslationYou have a project written in VB, and you need the code for a C#library (or vice-versa) 24. Code StandardizationPerformed as part of a build step, check-in, or during systemmigrationThis is generally badTools exist for this particular need 25. Discover Effects on CodeCompilers change your code to IL constructs. In C#, optimizationcan affect the outputIL Weaving 26. CuriosityMany people are simply curious about how a program works 27.
