or you can use this ("original" is your original String):

String capitalized = Character.toUpperCase(original.charAt(0)) + original.substring(1);
0

You are welcome.
Actually you might want to use this instead, it should be more efficient (event if it's a little more code):

    StringBuffer sbuff = new StringBuffer(original);
    sbuff.setCharAt(0, Character.toUpperCase(sbuff.charAt(0)));
    String capitalized = sbuff.toString();
