I'm working on Triple DES encryption with parameters in JAVA 5: 
 
Key Size :32 bytes 
Key : <key_phrase>
CipherMode : CBC (Cipher Block Chaining) 
Padding Mode : PKCS7 
 
How do I create an 8- byte array initialization vector with the following values in it, { 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8} in java. 
 
Equivalent C++ code is 
 
// The Initialization Vector for the DES encryption routine 
private readonly byte[] vector = new byte[16] { 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8};

Exactly the same apart from

a. the readonly - closest thing in Java is 'final'
b. numeric integral literals are treated as int, so you'll need to cast if the byte value exceeds Byte.MAX_VALUE (127 [ byte is signed - as are all other numeric types apart from char])

Please check.. if this is ok..
	byte[] iv = new byte[8];		
		int[] array = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8};
		for (int i = 0; i < 7; i++) {
			int offset = (iv.length - 1 - i) * 8;
			iv[i] = (byte) ((array[i] >>> offset) & 0xFF);			
		}

You've already got it right (in the other Java code you posted elsewhere)
