The Integer class has a method valueOf(String 2, radix r); That takes the string representation of a number and converts it to the base that you feed in in r.
So to convert 12345 to octal
Integer x = Integer.valueOf(12345, 8);
To convert to hex
Integer x = Integer.valueOf(12345, 16);

thanks for ur reply but still i need to know how to do conversion without using valueOf() method ?
thanks once again

ok.
The Integer class has two methods toHexString and toOctalString.
String s1 = Integer.toHexString(12345);
String s2 = Integer.toOctalString(12345);

Well, that was the first question. I guess you want to be able to do it by hand.
(BTW I deleted my first reply - the syntax is WAY wrong).
Normally I do it the hard way. To convert to octal
Assuming a number less that 32,768
____ ___ __ _
4096 512 64 8 etc.
Take the number in decimal and find out how may 4096's are in it. Put that number over the 4096 space. Take the remainder and find out how many 512's are in it, put that over the 512 space. Then find how many 64's are in the remainder, put it over the 64 space. The last number should be <=7 put it over the 8. Now it is in Octal.

You really need to get a Math tutorial. I haven't really found a good one but:

Meanwhile I found this number converter that is cute:

Hi Rahul,
Are you familiar with binary conversions?
As binary is,representing an integer to its base 2,an octal is representing an integer to its base 8 and hex is to the base 16.
You can convert the number to an octal the same way you find the
binary,except that you divide it by 8 instead of doing it by 2.
IF you want a detailed explanation pl ask.
Elizabeth.
