You can use MessageDigest class to generate an instance of MD5 hash:

 MessageDigest md = MessageDigest.getInstance("SHA-256");

 try {

     md.update(toChapter1);

     MessageDigest tc1 = md.clone();

     byte[] toChapter1Digest = tc1.digest();

     md.update(toChapter2);

     ...etc.

 } catch (CloneNotSupportedException cnse) {

     throw new DigestException("couldn't make digest of partial content");

 }
