How To Convert String To Byte In Java?

This tutorial highlights the simple example to demonstrates how to convert a string object to the byte stream. We can simply use the getBytes() method in the string object to convert the string to bytes array. Lets look at the example program.

package javabeat.net.core;

public class StringToByteExample {
	public static void main(String[] argv) {

		String str = "JavaBeat Website";
		byte[] bytes = str.getBytes();

		System.out.println("String Value : " + str);
		System.out.println("String [Byte Format] : " + bytes);
		System.out.println("-----Printing Bytes Array-------");
		for (int i=0;i<bytes.length;i++){
			System.out.println(bytes[i]);
		}

	}
}

Output

String Value : JavaBeat Website
String [Byte Format] : [B@15f5897
-----Printing Bytes Array-------
