I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I am not too sure if I understand it, plus they are using Javascript stuff like Math.floor()

There is exactly the same in Java!

Class Math: public static native double floor(double a)

I've tried to do everything that he does, and mine does not work correctly.  

private String itoHex(int i)
      {
            final char[] hex_array = {'0', '1', '2', '3', '4', '5', '6', '7', '8', '9', 'A', 'B',
                        'C', 'D', 'E', 'F'};
            double radix = 16;
            
            String s = "";

                double A = (double)i;

                while (A >= radix)
                {
                    double B = A % radix;
                    A = Math.floor(A / radix);
                    s += hex_array[(int)(B+1)];
                }
   
               s += hex_array[(int)(A+1)];
            return s;
      }

Like this, it's OK!

private String itoHex(int i)
                          {
                          final char[] hex_array = {'0', '1', '2', '3', '4', '5', '6', '7', '8', '9', 'A', 'B',
                          'C', 'D', 'E', 'F'};
                          double radix = 16;

                          String s = "";

                              double A = (double)i;

                              while (A >= radix)
                              {
                              double B = A % radix;
                              A = Math.floor(A / radix);
                              s = hex_array[(int)(B)] + s;
                              }
                             
                              s = hex_array[(int)(A)] + s;
                          return s;
                          }

Thanks, it works, I was close, but I had the  + 1 happening when I shouldn't have.

Yes, and also:

s += hex_array[(int)(B)];

is not the same as: s = hex_array[(int)(B)] + s; because you use Strings:

if A = "a" and B = "b":

A += B => "ab"
A =B+A => "ba"
