java – How to convert any Object to String?-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

Here is my code:

for (String toEmail : toEmailList)          
    Log.i("GMail","toEmail: "+toEmail);
    emailMessage.addRecipient(Message.RecipientType.TO, new InternetAddress(toEmail));      

Please give me some suggestion about this.

How to solve:

To convert any object to string there are several methods in Java

String convertedToString = String.valueOf(Object);  //method 1

String convertedToString = "" + Object;   //method 2

String convertedToString = Object.toString();  //method 3

I would prefer the first and third

If working in kotlin, the official android language

val number: Int = 12345
String convertAndAppendToString = "number = $number"   //method 1

String convertObjectMemberToString = "number = ${Object.number}" //method 2

String convertedToString = Object.toString()  //method 3


“toString()” is Very useful method which returns a string representation of an object. The “toString()” method returns a string reperentation an object.It is recommended that all subclasses override this method.

Declaration: java.lang.Object.toString()

Since, you have not mentioned which object you want to convert, so I am just using any object in sample code.

Integer integerObject = 5;
String convertedStringObject = integerObject .toString();
System.out.println(convertedStringObject );

You can find the complete code here.
You can test the code here.


I am try to convert Object type variable into string using this line of code

try this to convert object value to string:

Java Code

 Object dataobject=value;
    //convert object into String  
     String convert= String.valueOf(dataobject);


I’ve written a few methods for convert by Gson library and java 1.8 .

thay are daynamic model for convert.

string to object

object to string

List to string

string to List

HashMap to String

String to JsonObj

public static String convertMapToString(Map<String, String> data) {
    //convert Map  to String
    return new GsonBuilder().setPrettyPrinting().create().toJson(data);
public static <T> List<T> convertStringToList(String strListObj) {
    //convert string json to object List
    return new Gson().fromJson(strListObj, new TypeToken<List<Object>>() {
public static <T> T convertStringToObj(String strObj, Class<T> classOfT) {
    //convert string json to object
    return new Gson().fromJson(strObj, (Type) classOfT);

public static JsonObject convertStringToJsonObj(String strObj) {
    //convert string json to object
    return new Gson().fromJson(strObj, JsonObject.class);

public static <T> String convertListObjToString(List<T> listObj) {
    //convert object list to string json for
    return new Gson().toJson(listObj, new TypeToken<List<T>>() {

public static String convertObjToString(Object clsObj) {
    //convert object  to string json
    String jsonSender = new Gson().toJson(clsObj, new TypeToken<Object>() {
    return jsonSender;


If the class does not have toString() method, then you can use ToStringBuilder class from org.apache.commons:commons-lang3






I am not getting your question properly but as per your heading, you can convert any type of object to string by using toString() function on a String Object.
