from Tim Macinta
You don't need to use this Fast MD5 Implementation to get an MD5 hash in Java (though you are certainly welcome to).
You don't need to use this Fast MD5 Implementation to get an MD5 hash in Java (though you are certainly welcome to). The standard edition of Java comes with MD5 support built in. You might want to use this Fast MD5 Implementation if one or more of the following applies:
* Java's built-in MD5 support is a bottleneck for your program's performance and you want something faster.
* You are using a version of Java which doesn't have MD5 support, such as J2ME MIDP/CLDC.
* You want the extra convenience methods for hashing a file, hashing a string, converting the hash to a hex string, etc.
