No Such Algorithm Exception

Hi All,

I am using Java 1.6 and am getting the following exception:

Exception in thread "main" no such algorithm: AES/CBC/PKCS5Padding for provider SunJCE

Any one know what's wrong? I've read that this algorithm should be available for this provider.

I think you are mixing up KeyGenerator.getInstance and Cipher.getInstance

KeyGenerator.getInstance only takes an String for algorithm so getInstance("AES","JCE") is what you want

Cipher takes a string for transformation which is what you are trying to give.
