Codec - Commons Codec

Apache Codec - Commons Codec: "Commons Codec provides implementations of common encoders and decoders such as Base64, Hex, various phonetic encodings, and URLs." This is great; its full of all sorts of interesting encoders and decoders that I need alot, like base 64 encoding and more exotic ones like Soundex and Metaphone encoding, which can match words that sound similar but which aren't spelt the same.
