Vectors store their data as Objects only, so you have to cast back to the object type that you want.
To retrieve you String object, use something like:

This would retrieve the String object that is the first element in the Vector. Vectors, like arrays, are zero-based.
Hope this helps,
Michael
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
