The util module is the home for code which is used by other modules that does not need to be in prov. At the moment this is largely ASN. The pkix module is the home for code for X. The build scripts that come with the full distribution allow creation of the different releases by using the different source trees while excluding classes that are not appropriate and copying in the required compatibility classes from the directories containing compatibility classes appropriate for the distribution.
If you want to try create a build for yourself, using your own environment, the best way to do it is to start with the build for the distribution you are interested in, make sure that builds, and then modify your build scripts to do the required exclusions and file copies for your setup, otherwise you are likely to get class not found exceptions. The final caveat to this is that as the j2me distribution includes some compatibility classes starting in the java package, you need to use an obfuscator to change the package names before attempting to import a midlet using the BC API.

Branches Tags. The Java Cryptography Architecture has been defined as an independent layer. That means that the encryption is not done by the JCA, but by the provider.
The JCA architecture represents a simple and common mechanism for adding and using specific providers. The JCA allows programmers to write once, independently from the used provider. More, the programmer can use multiple providers at the same time or chose one at runtime. This is possible because the JCA was designed around these principles [description from java. One of these factory classes is Cipher which encapsulates all the cryptographic algorithms independently from the provider.
The both methods are simpler despite that for the first solution you must configure the Java Runtime. You recognize the jar archive for your JSE version because it has the jdk word in its name, followed by the version. In this post I will use the Bouncy Castle provider for the Java 6 platform, so I need the bcprov-jdk Step 1. Step 2. Copy the provider. Step 3. You must reference the Bouncy Castle. If the previous reference of the Bouncy Castle provider.
A lightweight cryptography API for Java and C#. · A provider for the Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) and the Java Cryptography Architecture (JCA). · A provider. Welcome to the home of the Legion of the Bouncy Castle Java cryptography APIs. The Bouncy Castle Crypto APIs are looked after by an Australian Charity, the. In this introductory article, we're going to show how to use BouncyCastle to perform cryptographic operations, such as encryption and signature.
