converting charcode to String

HI All,

I use lBufferedReader.read() to read single characters from a Stream. But what frustrates me is that it does not return a String but rather an integer.
How do I convert this int to a String?

int i = 10;

String.valueOf(i) will return String "10"

I am trying to read all of an HTTP request. the request are characters but the read() returns a single int per call.
the int returned I suppose is the CharCode.

Just do it the simple way. Read an int, convert it to char (the conversion here is correct) and add the char to the existing string:

s += (char)br.read();
