Use
BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(new ByteArrayInputStream(theArray)));

Open in new window

You can use the toByteArray(Reader) method in the jakarta IOUtils class for this:

And if you want to read from the SDtring as a byte array, you can do this:

BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(new ByteArrayInputStream(myString.getBytes())));

Well if it *were* a String, you'd do
BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new StringReader(s));

Open in new window

(although the below would be better)
Scanner in = new Scanner(s);
