Very Strange Java Concatenation Behaviour!

I'm Trying to construct my URL using the following concatenation

String url = URL_BASE + host  + "/gimp/index.php?cmd=" + cmd + "&user=" + userName + "&password=" + password.toString();

However, I get a reference to an object instead of the password itself.  "The password is passed in using a char array".  I also used the concat method with no luck at all.

Try instead:

String url = URL_BASE + host  + "/gimp/index.php?cmd=" + cmd + "&user=" + userName + "&password=" + new String(password);

Char{}.toString() is not producting String, whereas if you use condtrictor new String(char[] ) you'll get String out of char[] array
