I want to convert an object into string to store it in databse as varchar. Also when I retrieve this string from database, I should be able to get the same object i.e string to object conversion should be possible. Has anyone done this? Please share your ideas....

Thanks in advance.

How about serializing the Object in a String?

Serialize the object to a blob (java.sql.Blob) or use an O-R Mapping tool such as Hibernate.
