How do I decode string to integer?

The static Integer.decode() method can be use to convert a string representation of a number into an Integer object. Under the cover this method call the Integer.valueOf(String s, int radix).

The string can start with the optional negative sign followed with radix specified such as 0x, 0X, # for hexadecimal value, 0 (zero) for octal number.

package org.kodejava.example.lang;

public class IntegerDecode {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        String decimal = "10"; // Decimal
        String hexa = "0XFF"; // Hexa
        String octal = "077"; // Octal

        Integer number = Integer.decode(decimal);
        System.out.println("String [" + decimal + "] = " + number);

        number = Integer.decode(hexa);
        System.out.println("String [" + hexa + "] = " + number);

        number = Integer.decode(octal);
        System.out.println("String [" + octal + "] = " + number);
    }
}

The result of the code snippet above:

String [10] = 10
String [0XFF] = 255
String [077] = 63
