[resolved] Importing a Job from a jar file

Hi there.
Some source code has been lost... but I still have the external jar file created from the source jobs.
Is it at all possible to re-create the job from a jar file ?

Not without decompiling the Jar, reading the obfuscated decompiled code and then manually recreating the Job inside Talend using the code as a crib. Unfortunately Talend is a code generating tool. If you lose the Talend XML job designs, you cannot get from the compiled Java back to those automatically.

That's what I suspected.
Thanks for answering.
