Let said I have a string
String test="Test Code";
Can I convert the above string to ASCII code.  And then convert back the ASCII code to exact string. Is there any command in Java  that can convert it.  Thanks.

byte[] b = s.getBytes("ASCII");
String test2 = new String(b, "ASCII");

b contains ASCII (if original string consists of only ascii of course...)

if your default encoding is ascii/iso____ (i can't remember) u don't need the "ASCII"

if u write String
String test="Test Code";
like this U will get Unicode for perticular char. by using
getNumaricValue() method. from Character class.
I dont think its possible to get in terms of ASCII.
If u use String Constructors as lychee has shown u can get it.

Try this out :

....

String str = new String ("<YOUR STRING>") ;
String ascii_str ;

try {
    ascii_str = String (str.getBytes ("ASCII")) ;
} catch (UnsupportedEncodingException e) {
   System.out.println ("Unsupported Conversion") ;
   return (1) ;
}

System.out.println (ascii_str) ;
 ....
