StringBuffer sb = new StringBuffer("abc123");

for (int i=0;i<sb.length();i++) {
   if (sb.charAt(i) < 30 || sb.charAt(i) > 39) {
       sb = sb.deleteCharAt(i);
   }
}

System.out.println(sb.toString());

actually, try this (i tested this one ;))

String s = new String("abc1234567890");
String strReturn = "";

for (int i=0;i<s.length();i++) {
  if ((int) s.charAt(i) >= 48 && (int) s.charAt(i) <= 57) {
      strReturn += s.charAt(i);
  }
}

System.out.println(strReturn);
