There is no built in java API to do this (ie. you have to write the algorithm yourself).
Go to google and try searching on "numbers to words" or "cheque printer" algorithms.
Anyway here is a VB example to get you started.

The command line arguments supplied to a program are sent to the main method as an array of Strings. So, if you entered java class_name 25 then the variable args[0] would hold the String "25". I dont know of any standard way to convert the "25" to the words "twenty-five". Someone else may know of a package out there that does this or you may have to write it yourself.
hope that helps
