I am experimenting with BASE64/MD5 and would like to convert a byte array into their corresponding hex values. Any ideas how I can accomplish this?
Thanks,

Try,
byte b = 65;
Byte bite = new Byte(b);
String hex = Integer.toHexString(bite.intValue());

"shawn_ayers",
The Java Ranch has thousands of visitors every week, many with surprisingly similar names. To avoid confusion we have a naming convention, described at http://www.javaranch.com/name.jsp . We require names to have at least two words, separated by a space, and strongly recommend that you use your full real name. Please choose a new name which meets the requirements.
Thanks.

And be aware that converting characters to and from their hex codes is not base64, that's the encoding scheme used by uuencode.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
