I find myself having to convert an InputStream to a String on occasion. It isn’t something I do super-frequently so I usually have to go hunt down some code where I have done it before. Here it is for quick reference for myself and whoever else. This code uses a Java 1.7 try-with-resources statement. If you aren’t using Java 1.7+ you will of course need to use the correct try syntax for prior versions of Java with a finally block.
