Below programs illustrate toString() method:
Program 1:




// Java program to demonstrate
// Optional.toString() method
  
import java.util.*;
  
public class GFG {
  
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // create a Optional
        Optional<Integer> op
            = Optional.of(452146);
  
        // get value using toString
        String value = op.toString();
  
        // print value
        System.out.println("String Representation: "
                           + value);
    }
}

Output:

String Representation: Optional[452146]

Program 2:




// Java program to demonstrate
// Optional.toString() method
  
import java.util.Optional;
  
public class GFG {
  
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // create a Optional
        Optional<Integer> op
            = Optional.empty();
  
        // get value using toString
        String value = op.toString();
  
        // print value
        System.out.println("String Representation: "
                           + value);
    }
}
