How to create a String from the content in a file using Java 7?

I need to read a file from my code and convert it to a String using Java7 for my assignment. Can someone please help?

    You can use StringWriter of Apache commons IOUtils

    StringWriter sampleWriter = new StringWriter();
    IOUtils.copy(inputStream, sampleWriter, encoding);
    String theString = writer.toString();

    As another option, you can use ByteArrayOutputStream.
