Previously you were asking about ByteBuffer and CharBuffer. (Capitalization is important in Java.) You can convert a String to a CharBuffer using CharBuffer.wrap(CharSequence) (note that a String is also a CharSequence) and then you can use a CharsetEncoder to convert the CharBuffer to a ByteBuffer. It's much like the answer to your previous question, but in reverse. Study the APIs for the classes and methods that have been mentioned here; they contain explanations for how each of these works.
