How to convert an Array to String in Java?

Below are the various methods to convert an Array to String in Java:

  1. Arrays.toString() method: Arrays.toString() method is used to return a string representation of the contents of the specified array. The string representation consists of a list of the array’s elements, enclosed in square brackets (“[]”). Adjacent elements are separated by the characters “, ” (a comma followed by a space). It returns “null” if the array is null.

    // Java program to demonstrate
    // working of Arrays.toString()
      
    import java.io.*;
    import java.util.*;
      
    class GFG {
        public static void main(String[] args)
        {
      
            // Let us create different types of arrays and
            // print their contents using Arrays.toString()
            boolean[] boolArr
                = new boolean[] { true, true, false, true };
            char[] charArr
                = new char[] { 'g', 'e', 'e', 'k', 's' };
            double[] dblArr
                = new double[] { 1, 2, 3, 4 };
            int[] intArr
                = new int[] { 1, 2, 3, 4 };
            Object[] objArr
                = new Object[] { 1, 2, 3, 4 };
      
            System.out.println(
                "Boolean Array: "
                + Arrays.toString(boolArr));
            System.out.println(
                "Character Array: "
                + Arrays.toString(charArr));
            System.out.println(
                "Double Array: "
                + Arrays.toString(dblArr));
            System.out.println(
                "Integer Array: "
                + Arrays.toString(intArr));
            System.out.println(
                "Object Array: "
                + Arrays.toString(objArr));
        }
    }

    Output:

    Boolean Array: [true, true, false, true]
    Character Array: [g, e, e, k, s]
    Double Array: [1.0, 2.0, 3.0, 4.0]
    Integer Array: [1, 2, 3, 4]
    Object Array: [1, 2, 3, 4]
    
  2. StringBuilder append(char[]): The java.lang.StringBuilder.append(char[]) is the inbuilt method which appends the string representation of the char array argument to this StringBuilder sequence.

    public class Geeks {
      
        public static void main(String[] args)
        {
      
            StringBuilder sbf
                = new StringBuilder("We are geeks ");
            System.out.println(sbf);
      
            // Char array
            char[] astr
                = new char[] { 'G', 'E', 'E', 'k', 'S' };
      
            // Appends string representation of char
            // array to this String Builder
            sbf.append(astr);
            System.out.println("Result after"
                               + " appending = "
                               + sbf);
      
            sbf = new StringBuilder("We are -");
            System.out.println(sbf);
      
            // Char array
            astr = new char[] { 'a', 'b', 'c', 'd' };
      
            /* Appends string representation of char 
                    array to this StringBuilder */
            sbf.append(astr);
            System.out.println("Result after appending = " + sbf);
        }
    }

    Output:

    We are geeks 
    Result after appending = We are geeks GEEkS
    We are -
    Result after appending = We are -abcd
