Hi all,

Are there any methods to convert the value of primitive data type to byte[]? Let's say, converting an int to byte[] will return byte[].length == 4, short to byte[] will return byte[].length == 2 and so on.

Is it possible doing it without using NIO?

Regards,
Allan Cheong

And the reason you don't want to use the ByteBuffer class is ... ??

Then you are back to basics... For each of the four bytes, shift the bits into place, AND out the other bits, and assign (cast).
