Android Question

Is there a Util to convert US State Name to State Code. eg. Arizona to AZ?

I need to convert full state name to its official state address code. For example from the String New York, I need to produce NY. Now I could put this all in a hashmap, but it seems there must be a utility for this? I am in an Android environment. I don't want to import a large library just for this one util however. Thanks
