something like

try {

   Integer.parseInt("12345");
   Float.parseFloat("12345.50");

} catch (NumberFormatException nfe) {
   // invalid string
}

If you're using Swing, create a document that doesn't allow the user to enter any non-digit characters and use a JTextField that utilizes your new document.

If u are using TextField component,U can add a KeyListener to the text field.for each character verify whether that char is in between 0 and 9.
for eg, ch >=0 && ch <= 9, then only you allow user to enter, otherwise display error message to him.
or
create a document that doesnot allow the user to enter other than digits.Take the constructor of JTextField to utilize ur created document object.or use setDocument()

Hope this will help u.
