it just creates an array of characters from a supplied string. They just give you the api you have to make a decision where to use it or not. I used it once where i want it to read the string backwards so i made char array using this method and then just looped from last element to first and constructed a new string in reverse order.

public char[] toCharArray()
This function converts the string to a new character array. It returns a newly allocated character array whose length is the length of the string and whose contents are initialized to contain the character sequence represented by this string.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
