I don't know of anything that does that completely.

you can disassemble individual compiled NewtonScript functions using
ViewFrame (there's also a tool (CFKAC) by NewtsPrism
mentioned in the FAQ though I haven't tried that myself)

and of course if you've got a Newton package (or Palm .pdb/.prc or WinCE
.wrp/.lnk) file that contains Java(Waba) code, you can extract classes using
WabaTester, and then run them thru a disassembler like jad.

Newton apps/tools: Newt's Cape, newtVNC, NewtDevEnv, Sloup, Crypto,...
