  public static String byteArrayToHexString(byte in[]) {
 

	    byte ch = 0x00;

	    int i = 0; 
 

	    if (in == null || in.length <= 0)

	        return null;
 

	    String pseudo[] = {"0", "1", "2","3", "4", "5", "6", "7", "8","9", "A", "B", "C", "D", "E","F"};

	    StringBuffer out = new StringBuffer(in.length * 2);
 

	    while (i < in.length) {
 

	        ch = (byte) (in[i] & 0xF0); // Strip off high nibble

	        ch = (byte) (ch >>> 4);	     // shift the bits down

	        ch = (byte) (ch & 0x0F);    //	must do this is high order bit is on!
 

	        out.append(pseudo[ (int) ch]); // convert the nibble to a String Character

	        ch = (byte) (in[i] & 0x0F); // Strip off low nibble 

	        out.append(pseudo[ (int) ch]); // convert the nibble to a String Character

	        i++;

	    }
 

	    String rslt = new String(out);

	    return rslt;

	}
