Generating Public and Private keys.

Hi All,
I want to generate PublicKey and PrivateKey pairs in my java program and distribute the public key. How do I convert the PublicKey into a String ?
I can convert it into a byte array, but not able to extract a string value.
Further, how do I obtain the PrivateKey object back from the Supplied string.
Some code snippets will be really helpful.
Thank you.

hope i inderstodd your problem...if you can get a byte array simply construct a string out of this byte array..see the various String constructors..
