Hi all,

We all know that , string class is declared a final. Then how is it possible to override the toString method in the throwable class ?

The Throwable class doesn't override the toString() method of the String class but it overrides the toString() method of the Object class.

You are right , The toString() method of the "Object" class is overridden in the Throwable class.

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link:
