Easy bean to string conversion using commons-lang

String bnStr=org.apache.commons.lang.builder.ReflectionToStringBuilder.toString(myBean, ToStringStyle.MULTI_LINE_STYLE );
This will print all the properties of the bean by invoking their toString method. This method won’t go down the bean hierarcy to print each nested property. If you want that feature, you write a ParentBean class and override its toString method and make all other beans extend this one. That way, you should be able to see everything in the bean tree.
