A file will be encrypted in php and decrypted in java or encrypted in java and decrypted in php.

I know it is possible but will like to knowthe most suitable encryption algorithm.

Sounds like a PHP forum may be better for this question.

I would say any algorithm that you deem strong enough for your purposes, and for which you can find implementations for both languages. You can find a list of what Java supports here.

Thanks for the help.
