Well, that's going to be tricky! If you could explain what value you mean by 0xgh someone may be able to answer.

sir,....actually........ value of "a" should be converted to byte array
byte[] command={0x2D,0x12,0x01,0x00 ,0x00 ,0x00 ,0x00 ,0x00 ,0x00 ,0x00 ,0x02 ,(byte) 0xFF ,(byte) 0xFF ,0x08 ,0x00 ,0x06 ,0x11 ,0x01 ,0x02};

so this value i will be sending using tcp/ip socket....

1 solution

From this hex String To Byte Array tutorial

public static byte[] hexStringToByteArray(String s) {
  byte[] b = new byte[s.length() / 2];
  for (int i = 0; i < b.length; i++) {
    int index = i * 2;
    int v = Integer.parseInt(s.substring(index, index + 2), 16);
    b[i] = (byte) v;
  return b;
