Reverse Engineering Tools in 2022

I think they forgot to google translate the disadvantages of JEB Decompiler
I haven't used JEB to comment, but I've gotten a lot of mileage out of https://github.com/pxb1988/dex2jar#readme and then feed the normal Java jars it produces into https://github.com/mstrobel/procyon#readme and (of course) one shouldn't overlook picking your favorite tool for dealing with AndroidManifest.xml which often has fun things hiding in it
While digging up those links, I was reminded that some folks enjoy https://github.com/Konloch/bytecode-viewer#is-there-a-demo because it can be easier to "try out" a few of the decompilation engines, but I don't use it because it's hard to do batch things with it, versus dex2jar into procyon is automation friendly
Is there any tool for Java reverse engineering that doesn't totally suck?

Here's a good tool for inspecting the bytecode of applications, with built in decompiler support: https://github.com/Konloch/bytecode-viewer

Also, you can always install the latest release and then put it through a Java decompiler to get the complete source code. It might have some errors since decompilers aren't perfect, but will give you a more complete source code than anything I can legally provide.
