Here is a base-64 encoder/decoder you can use. Its API is a bit different from what you're using, but I'm sure you can figure it out. Alternatively, use the Apache Commons Codec library.

So you don't want to tell us about the cross posting here
Please read BeForthrightWhenCrossPostingToOtherSites (<=link; click)

Out of curiosity, where did you get this code in the first place?

Assuming that the goal is still to do OCR -as the subject of this topic suggest it is- I'm curious what you think this will achieve, though.

Also, this: "String tempFileData = new String(fileData)" is wrong. Image data is binary, you can't store it in a string unless you base-64 encode it first.
I agree. Here's the link:
