Hi,

I am going through below example
http://www.avajava.com/tutorials/lessons/whats-a-quick-way-to-output-the-values-in-an-array.html?page=2

ArrayUtils.toString() is a great way to display the values of simple data types. For more complex data types, like JavaBeansW, you can use ArrayUtils.toString() in conjunction with ToStringBuilder.reflectionToString() in the toString() method of your complex data type to display the values of your objects in your array.


I have not understood what author meant by above line.

please advise
Any links resources ideas highly appreciated. Thanks in advance

It mans it is a great way to use ToStringBuilder.reflectionToString() in toString() to print your array of complex types .

For arrays of simple data types you can use ArrayUtils.toString() and that gives you the expected result "by default".

For complex data types (classes), you have to override the toString() method of those classes.
i.e. exactly specify how you want the string representation of an instance of your complex class to look like.

The sentence you don't understand states, that in the latter case, you can use ToStringBuilder.reflectionToString() in that toString() method code you write.

ToStringBuilder.reflectionToString() in that toString() method code you write.

In the class TestClass.
Method:

public String toString() {
    return "\n" + ToStringBuilder.reflectionToString(this);
}

the ArrayTest class contains an inner class called TestClass.

I wonder why author used inner class in this case. please advise

In this (simple) case TestClass could have been perfectly a "global" class too.

When should inner classes be used in Java?
