Well, that depends on what does "convert" mean. What needs to be changed to "convert" the byte array to a float value?

Now, if by "convert", the byte array is already holding the bits for the float, and you just need those bits for the float. You can do this...

BTW, the ByteBuffer class is in the java.nio package.
