We are happy to announce the release of Stringer Java Obfuscator 2.5.15 where we significantly improved protection mechanisms. And now they can be used to secure your Java applications (JARs, WARs, EARs) against decompiling/reverse-engineering and cracking.
Stay tuned to the product's blog to see how you can create trial versions of your software with no efforts. We are going to publish the second part (now available!) of the article where we describe how you can create a reliable licensing mechanism for your applications at zero-cost very soon.
The most important change is the all new Integrity Protection mechanism (Tamper Resistance). Do not forget to check if you added all the sensitive classes into the filter, use at least Java 7 for your builds, and have the integrityProtection option enabled in your configuration.
Stringer's Gradle plugin now supports Java projects. Please see the Using as Gradle-plugin: Protecting Java Applications section for configuration details.
Fixed issue with crashes under JVM 8_91/92 while Hot Spot Compiler C1 compilation of methods that were protected with InvokeDynamic.
All the Maven artifacts are now shipped within the distribution package. Here you can see how to install them into your local repository.
