This might be a dumb question, but can someone provide some sample code that encrypts data in Java?  I have a public key that I'm suppose to use if that helps.  thanks

There are some API's for doing this including the javax.crypto package.

http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/api/javax/crypto/package-summary.html

Take a look at KeyGenerator and Cipher classes to get started.

Here is an example of another method provided by the Java Cryptography Extensions (JCE):
