What I have tried:

i want my output in a string like if input=2948 then output=9842.I'm using toString() but it doesn't take variable 'a'.Can anyone please help me in this?

Your question is not clear. What problem are you having? Have you tired debugging?

Code is working fine and i'm getting the output in individual manner like 9
i want to display my output in a single line like 9842.For this i'm trying to convert my int array into a string and display that string.But I'm not able to do so.what should i do then?

Just call Integer.toString(int) or String.valueOf(int)for each array item and append it to the output string:
//String str;
String str = "";
for (int a:intArray)
    str += Integer.toString(a);

i got the output.i intialized it as str="" instead of writing null.Thanks a lot.

Sorry, I forgot the initialisation (doing mainly C++ where a string object is automatically initialised as empty string).

Fine that you fixed that yourself.
you can tyr this

String str=intArray.toString();
