Soot is a Java optimization framework. It provides four intermediate representations for analyzing and transforming Java bytecode: 1. Baf: a streamlined representation of bytecode which is simple to manipulate. 2. Jimple: a typed 3-address intermediate representation suitable for optimization. 3. Shimple: an SSA variation of Jimple. 4. Grimp: an aggregated version of Jimple suitable for decompilation and code inspection. Soot can be used as a stand alone tool to optimize or inspect class files, as well as a framework to develop optimizations or transformations on Java bytecode.
