Package org.apache.commons.codec Description

Interfaces and classes used by the various implementations in the sub-packages.

Definitive implementations of commonly used encoders and decoders.

Codec is currently comprised of a modest set of utilities and a simple framework for String encoding and decoding in three categories: Binary Encoders, Language Encoders, and Network Encoders.

Binary Encoders

org.apache.commons.codec.binary.Base64 Provides Base64 content-transfer-encoding as defined in RFC 2045Production
org.apache.commons.codec.binary.Hex Converts an array of bytes into an array of characters representing the hexadecimal values of each byte in order Production

Language Encoders

Codec contains a number of commonly used language and phonetic encoders

org.apache.commons.codec.language.SoundexImplementation of the Soundex algorithm.Production
org.apache.commons.codec.language.MetaphoneImplementation of the Metaphone algorithm.Production

Network Encoders

Codec contains network related encoders

org.apache.commons.codec.net.URLCodecImplements the 'www-form-urlencoded' encoding scheme.Production
