Apache Commons Codec Source Code

Apache Commons Codec library provides implementations of common encoders and decoders such as Base64, Hex, Phonetic and URLs.

Apache Commons Codec Source Code files are provided in both binary packge (commons-codec-3.15-bin.zip) and source package (commons-codec-3.15-src.zip). You can download them at Apache Commons Codec Website.

Apache Commons Codec Source Code has no dependencies. You can compile it to generate your own version of Apache Commons Codec JAR file.
