How to convert a Byte Array to Hex String

The following code block helps you to convert a byte array to hex string format.

private String byteArrayToHexString(byte in[]){
        byte ch = 0x00;
        int i = 0;
        if (in == null || in.length <= 0){
            return null;
        }
        String pseudo[] = {"0", "1", "2","3", "4", "5", "6", "7", "8","9", "A", "B", "C", "D", "E", "F"};
        StringBuffer out_str_buf = new StringBuffer(in.length * 2);
        while (i < in.length){
            ch = (byte) (in[i] & 0xF0); // Strip off high nibble
            ch = (byte) (ch >>> 4);     // shift the bits down
            ch = (byte) (ch & 0x0F);    // must do this is high order bit is on!
            out_str_buf.append(pseudo[ (int) ch]); // convert the nibble to a String Character
            ch = (byte) (in[i] & 0x0F); // Strip off low nibble
            out_str_buf.append(pseudo[ (int) ch]); // convert the nibble to a String Character
            i++;
        }
        String rslt = new String(out_str_buf);
        return rslt;
    }
