Default Base64Encoder and Md5 Incomplete Source code


I'm trying to complete the following source code so that I can convert to c# to test if the token produced from both languages are exactly the same:

JAVA Snapshot source:

import java.lang.*;
import java.util.*;
import java.net.*;

import java.util.Scanner;
import java.io.*;
import java.security.*;

public class clstoken {
private String strToken;

public static void main(String[] args) {
    clstoken objtoken = new clstoken();
    objtoken.createToken("name a","name b","name c");

public void createToken (String str_A, String str_B, String str_C){
String strtime = Long.toString (System.currentTimeMillis ());
this.strToken = URLEncoder.encode (str_A, "UTF-8")
     + ":"
     + URLEncoder.encode(str_B, “UTF-8”)
     + ":"
     + strtime
     + ":"
     + new Base64Encoder ().encode (
    new Md5 (str_A + str_B + strtime + str_C).getDigest ());
System.out.println("Token is " + this.strToken);


If I run this 'Base64Encoder' and 'Md5' classes cannot be found. I'm not too sure if JAVA 1.6 contains these classes as I cannot find them. Can anyone help complete the source?

I'm running Windows XP Pro and JAVA 1.6.

There is no Base64 encoder/decoder in the standard Java SDK class library


Once you start a working on something,
dont be afraid of failure and dont abandon it.
People who work sincerely are the happiest.
