Subject Re: Create Content-MD5 hash
Date Tue, 27 Sep 2011 15:18:13 GMT
Hi Keith

Thanks for the hint. I have actually applied it onto a java implementation
of the hash generation and it produced a correct hash value. Here is my
implementation:

MessageDigest md5 = MessageDigest.getInstance("MD5");
byte[] digest = md5.digest("{ \"valid\": \"json\" }".getBytes());
byte[] hash = Base64.encodeBase64(digest);
System.out.println(new String(hash));

Output: S/OqwXHe0WedNQHMvT4NhQ==

It uses Base64 from the apache commons project. I have used that has value

Now onto my final question: can i also validated the content of a couchdb
document i create by uploading a json document?

Regards
Moritz Post
