Hi,
I found ByteToCharConverter. But it's depricated. What is the accepted practice to convert a byte array to a string of characters in Java 6? byte[].toString() does not convert the bytes to chars.

Not all of the constructors of the java.lang.String class are deprecated -- just the ones that didn't work very well are. I am sure one of the constructors / methods of the String class will work here.

That's works only if the contents of the array are encoded using the platform default encoding. Unless it's known in advance that that will always be the case, it's better to specify the encoding explicitly.
