Hi !

>From who do you want to hide your code ?

If you want to hide it to the client (=browser), there's no need to
obfuscate your classes. All your classes or lib are under "/WEB-INF"
directory, a compliant HTTP server shouldn't allow to see them.

If you want to hide to the server administrator, obfuscation is a way. But
as someone ever said, anyone who really want to see the code will succeed
(with more or less pain).
