Using jadclipse pluging installed in ur IDE,u can view the class files like java files, but u will not be able to edit.

To make a class file into java file in editable format, get the jad.exe file
in crompt prompt, goto the file location, keep the jad.exe where the class file is present and run the command

jad <Filename>.class
The output will be filaname.jad, u can rename them as java file and use it again

The jad doesnt bring the comments and import statements which were there in the class file
