See more:
String senc = "String to encode"; digest ="MD5");

What to do next to get the String with MD5?
EDIT: Is this possible at all? (using built in md5-support)
I can't found working examples:(
Please, help.

byte msgDigest[] = algorithm.digest();//==> error occurs

required: byte[], int, int.
found: no arguments.
Ok, I wrote:
byte msgDigest[] = algorithm.digest(sencBytes, 0, sencBytes.length);

and i got an error again:
required: byte[], int, int.
found: int
I don't know why found int if first argument is byte[] :(

It shows you haven't opened the Java Documentation.
Anyways the following is the way to implement MD5 Message Digest. Hope it helps.

String senc = "String to encode";
byte[] sencBytes = senc.getBytes();
	MessageDigest algorithm = MessageDigest.getInstance("MD5");
	byte msgDigest[] = algorithm.digest();
	StringBuffer md5String = new StringBuffer();
	for (int i=0;i<msgDigest.length;i++) {
		md5String.append(Integer.toHexString(0xFF & msgDigest[i]));
	String foo = msgDigest.toString();
	System.out.println("MD5 of "+senc+" is "+md5String.toString());
}catch(NoSuchAlgorithmException nsae){
            JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, "Warning!!", "No Such Alogorithm Available", JOptionPane.ERROR_MESSAGE);

Thanks, but I don't know why your code not works for me..

You need to say _what_ doesn't work

I tested GPUToaster's code and edited my first post to show what doesn't work.
