Given input as string and we have to convert it into Boolean value using java program.


Input string: ‘true’
Boolean value: true


  • First we are taking input as string using statement String str =KB.next();
  • And, then creating an object of "Boolean" class by passing string value to its constructor, statement: Boolean blnObj1 = new Boolean(str);
  • And, then printing the object blnObj1 using System.out.println
  • The output value will be Boolean value.

Program to convert string to Boolean in java

import java.util.Scanner;

public class ConvertStringToBoolean 
	public static void main(String[] args) 
		// create object of scanner.
		Scanner KB=new Scanner(System.in);

		// enter path here.
		System.out.print("Enter the string here : ");

		//construct String object
		String str =KB.next();

		// Convert using constructor
		Boolean blnObj1 = new Boolean(str);
		System.out.println("Boolean value is : " +blnObj1);


First run:
Enter the string here : true
Boolean value is : true

Second run:
Enter the string here : false
Boolean value is : false
