Following is the declaration for java.lang.Integer.valueOf() method

public static Integer valueOf(String s, int radix) throws NumberFormatException


  • s -- This is the string to be parsed.

  • radix -- This is the radix to be used in interpreting s.

Return Value

  • NumberFormatException -- if the String does not contain a parsable int.


The following example shows the usage of java.lang.Integer.valueOf() method.

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.lang.*;

public class IntegerDemo {

   public static void main(String[] args) {

   Integer i = new Integer(30);
   String str = "50";
   /* returns a Integer instance representing the specified 
   string with radix 10 */
   System.out.println("Value = " + i.valueOf(str, 10));

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result:

Value = 50
