is String.getBytes() efficient??

Hi,
This is Objective 6.2:
Develop code that correctly implements adding, retrieving, modifying, and deleting individual records in a RecordStore, and converting RecordStore record data to and from byte arrays, and that reflects performance implications.


Is the getBytes() method of the String class considered to be an efficient way of placing text in a RecordStore? or should we use some other method involving ByteStreams?
What about new String( byte[] ) for getting Records out??

Thanks in advance for any advice,

Actually that is what I use to read and write records to my RecordStore. I would think that just the act of opening up the Streams would take time.
