The nextBytes() method of Random class places the generated random bytes into an user-supplied byte array.

Syntax:

public void nextBytes(byte[] bytes)  

Parameters: The function accepts a single parameter bytes which is the non-null byte array in which to put the random bytes.

            System.out.printf("%d ", bytes[i]);
        }
        System.out.print("]");
