The string representation is the string "class" or "interface", followed by a space, and then by the fully qualified name of the class in the format returned by getName(). If this Class object represents a primitive type, this method returns the name of the primitive type. If this Class object represents void this method returns "void".

package com.logicbig.example.clazz;

public class ToStringExample {

public static void main(String... args) {
String s = String.class.toString();
System.out.println(s);
}
}

Output

class java.lang.String




package com.logicbig.example.clazz;

public class ToStringExample2 {

public static void main(String... args) {
String s = Runnable.class.toString();
System.out.println(s);

s = Deprecated.class.toString();
System.out.println(s);
}
}

interface java.lang.Deprecated




package com.logicbig.example.clazz;

public class ToStringExample3 {

public static void main(String... args) {

System.out.println(s);

System.out.println(s);

s = void.class.toString();
System.out.println(s);
