Hi
How do we convert a primitive byte array to a String or a String array? I tried first, to convert the byte array to "Byte" array, but was unable to do it. My idea was to get the values stored in the Byte array and use this to convert into String or String array. I would appreciate if someone can help with this.
Code:
// data variable gets populated with byte values
byte[] data = e.getEventData();
// declare a Byte object array
Byte[] data1;
Question: How do we assign each value of the primitive byte values to the corresponding Byte values. Byte class has a constructor which takes in a byte value, but how do we recursively populate the Byte array with the byte primitive values?
Thanks
Suresh

You create a new String object with it
// data variable gets populated with byte values
byte[] data = e.getEventData();
//create a new String object
String s = new String(data);
Hope this helps
