You can convert string into an array of bytes using the following methods in String class:
1. public byte getBytes()[];
2. public void getBytes(int, int, byte[], int);
3. public byte getBytes(java.lang.String)[] throws;

check it out for urself:
just type "javap java.lang.String |more" at the command prompt
