Entity

public final class Entity
extends Object

java.lang.Object
   ↳ android.content.Entity


A representation of a item using ContentValues. It contains one top level ContentValue plus a collection of Uri, ContentValues tuples as subvalues. One example of its use is in Contacts, where the top level ContentValue contains the columns from the RawContacts table and the subvalues contain a ContentValues object for each row from the Data table that corresponds to that RawContact. The uri refers to the Data table uri for each row.

toString

added in API level 8
public String toString ()

Returns a string representation of the object. In general, the toString method returns a string that "textually represents" this object. The result should be a concise but informative representation that is easy for a person to read. It is recommended that all subclasses override this method.

The toString method for class Object returns a string consisting of the name of the class of which the object is an instance, the at-sign character `@', and the unsigned hexadecimal representation of the hash code of the object. In other words, this method returns a string equal to the value of:

 getClass().getName() + '@' + Integer.toHexString(hashCode())
 

Returns
String a string representation of the object.
