J2EE .class file compiling for jar, ear files.

Currently Being Moderated
I know that using the former Sun/present Oracle .class java source code compiler,
I create a platform independet class file which can be used by the java language
on any OS environment with the appropriate Java Runtime Environment installed.

I know that there are obfuscation tools available to prevent the .class file decompilation
related issues.
I have also been using the GNU gcj compiler with great success. However,
I havn't been able to find a non-commercial purchase compiler that can create
.class files, with the same platform independence, but that can't be easily decompiled
based on the simple content in .class files. Can someone point me to someone on the net
for a free for commercial development java compiler, past about 1.5.X ?
