If its a string use:

int t = Integer.parseInt((String) map.getValue());

Hi HomerrSimpson,

>> its an int
Maybe you mean an Integer object:
int t = ((Integer)map.getValue())).intValue();

>> TreeMap map = new TreeMap();
There is no getValue() method in java.util.TreeMap. To get a value from the map you need the key and call the get method:
Object get(Object key)

ahh yeah that was typo this is what i got
i am using Map.Entry that had a getValue()

TreeMap map = new TreeMap();
Set entries = map.entrySet();
Iterator iter = entries.iterator();
            
 while (iter.hasNext()) {
               Map.Entry entry = (Map.Entry)iter.next();
               String term = (String)entry.getKey();

int t = ((Integer)entry.getValue())).intValue(); <--doesnt work either

What did you put in the map...?   A String or an Integer...?   This will determine how you go about retrieving it.   For example, you can put things in the map in one of the following ways:

   //--- add a String representation of an int...
   map.put ("a", "123");  

   //--- add an Integer wrapper around an int..
   map.put ("a", new Integer(123));

Either way, you can convert the value back to an int primitive (but your extraction technique will depend on what type the value is).  For example, if you added it as a String :

               Map.Entry entry = (Map.Entry)iter.next();
               String term = (String)entry.getKey();

               String strValue = (String)entry.getValue();
               int intValue = Integer.parseInt(strValue);
 
If you added it as an Integer :


               Map.Entry entry = (Map.Entry)iter.next();
               String term = (String)entry.getKey();

               Integer intWrapper = (Integer)entry.getValue();
               int intValue = intWrapper.intValue();
