Why would u want to do that ?
If You need teh conents of the document, I think teh only way to do it is is parse teh document and write it in a String buffer and then call toString() on that String buffer !!!
I am not sure about any utility method that would convert the Document objects contents into a String directly !!!
And if converting to a string was not for this purpose, please do state specifically the requirement for converting the document obj to a string
hope this helps
