Special characters in the decrypted text

I am trying to encrypt/decrypt a string using JCE blowfish in the servlet (Tomcat engine 4.1.x) The encrypted text will be kept in the user session after the encryption process using a pre-defined key string (eg:- "hello").When I try to decrypt the string using the encrypted text and key in the servlert get method it gives me a corrupted string with some funny specical character in it.
Has anyone come across this problem before.. if someone could help me to sort out this would be helpful as i have to deliver this stuff asap.
pls. see below for the apache window with log messages.

I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
