Printing string variable in Java

You’re getting the toString() value returned by the Scanner object itself which is not what you want and not how you use a Scanner object. What you want instead is the data obtained by the Scanner object. For example,

Scanner input = new Scanner(;
String data = input.nextLine();

Please read the tutorial on how to use it as it will explain all.

Please look here: Scanner tutorial

Also have a look at the Scanner API which will explain some of the finer points of Scanner’s methods and properties.
