###### We know earlier, **[parsing](http://way2java.com/java-lang/wrapper-classes/)** is the operation on strings to convert into data types. This parsing, we used in command-line arguments and User Password validation. Now we think the other way. Sometimes, it is required to convert data types to string; exactly opposite of parsing. For this purpose, the String class comes with valueOf() static method. valueOf() is overloaded to take any data type as parameter and converts into string; it converts even objects into strings. Here, int to String is converted.
