Convert InputStream To String In Java

In my previous example, I have written a simple program to covert string object to InputStream. This tutorial does the reverse, converting inputstream into a string object. Lets look at the example.

package javabeat.net.core;

import java.io.BufferedReader;
import java.io.ByteArrayInputStream;
import java.io.IOException;
import java.io.InputStream;
import java.io.InputStreamReader;

public class InputStreamToSTringExample {
	public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException {
		InputStream in = new ByteArrayInputStream(
				"This is sample string".getBytes());
		String resultVal = getResult(in);
		System.out.println(resultVal);
		System.out.println("Input Stream To String is completed");
	}

	private static String getResult(InputStream is) {
		BufferedReader bufferedReader = null;
		StringBuilder strBuilder = new StringBuilder();
		String line;
		try {
			bufferedReader = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(is));
			while ((line = bufferedReader.readLine()) != null) {
				strBuilder.append(line);
			}

		} catch (IOException e) {
			e.printStackTrace();
		} finally {
			if (bufferedReader != null) {
				try {
					bufferedReader.close();
				} catch (IOException e) {
					e.printStackTrace();
				}
			}
		}
		return strBuilder.toString();
	}
}
