I guess you get the error when encrypting?
Pad the input to be a multiple of 8 bytes and it should go away.
Then after decoding remove the padding again (you can use an extra datablock appended to the data (8 bytes of course because of the DES requiring that) to determine how many bytes to remove).

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
