Input: List<String> = ["Geeks", "ForGeeks", "GeeksForGeeks"]
Output: "Geeks, For, Geeks"

Input: List<String> = ["G", "e", "e", "k", "s"]
Output: "G, e, e, k, s"

Approach: This can be achieved with the help of join() method of String as follows.

  1. Get the List of String.
  2. Form a comma separated String from the List of String using join() method by passing comma ‘, ‘ and the list as parameters.
  3. Print the String.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:


// Java program to convert List of String
// to comma separated String
import java.util.*;
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String args[])
        // Get the List of String
            list = new ArrayList<>(
        // Print the List of String
        System.out.println("List of String: " + list);
        // Convert the List of String to String
        String string = String.join(", ", list);
        // Print the comma separated String
        System.out.println("Comma separated String: "
                           + string);
