What types of objects are in the array? Unless the objects have defined meaningful toString() methods, the default is to generate a unique string usually including a memory reference.

On every object instance,toString() method should be overrided in the object class which you define,so that it can display the meaningful information which you want to display.
In which you define the object class do the following to override the default one
