Hello everybody!I would like some help with something!I'm working with eclipse (helios), apache tomcat 6 and axis 2 and i'm trying to create a web service that takes a string as an input and generates an md5 hush. I have done the web service part using the following code:


public class AeSimpleMD5 {

private static String convertToHex(byte[] data) {
StringBuffer buf = new StringBuffer();
for (int i = 0; i < data.length; i++) {
int halfbyte = (data[i] >>> 4) & 0x0F;
int two_halfs = 0;
do {
if ((0 <= halfbyte) && (halfbyte <= 9))
buf.append((char) ('0' + halfbyte));
buf.append((char) ('a' + (halfbyte - 10)));
halfbyte = data[i] & 0x0F;
} while(two_halfs++ < 1);
return buf.toString();

public static String MD5(String text)
throws NoSuchAlgorithmException, UnsupportedEncodingException {
MessageDigest md;
md = MessageDigest.getInstance("MD5");
byte[] md5hash = new byte[32];
md.update(text.getBytes("iso-8859-1"), 0, text.length());
md5hash = md.digest();
return convertToHex(md5hash);

and it works great. The probleme is that i want to create the client for this and i can't understand the code that i'm must write. I have found many tutorials so I don't thing that i will have a probleme on what i must do. Just the code! Please help! Thanx in advance!!!
