I am using the Android javax API to encrypt a string which returns a byte array which I again convert into String (purpose is to write to textfile later).
Now using this String, I convert to byte array to decrypt which returns another byte array which I convert again to String.
I could not get this to work. I narrowed down the issue to the string conversion to byte array portion. Because if i use the encrpted byte array to decrypt and then get the String it works.
Not sure what's the issue. I have used the following for the conversion:
Byte  theByteArray = str.getBytes("UTF-8");
String val = new String (theByteArray , "UTF-8");
Byte  theByteArray = str.getBytes();
String val = new String (theByteArray);
