Hi I have the followig method
      public String toString()
      {
        StringBuffer buff = new StringBuffer();
        buff.append("This is a test message");
        return buff.toString      
      }

This returns  "" basically nothing
but if I use
                 return new String(buff.toString());

This returns the required result.

Cant understand :(

That won't compile at the moment

>>return buff.toString      

should be

return buff.toString();

The above code wont compile
because >>> return buff.toString <<< should actually be buff.toString()
and yeah they both should give the same output.
