Have a look at java.net.InetAddress:

public static InetAddress InetAddress.getByName()
public byte[] InetAddress.getAddress()

check this code.

    try
    {
      byte[] thisBytes = java.net.InetAddress.getByName("192.168.1.11").getAddress();
      for(int i = 0; i < thisBytes.length; i++)
        System.out.println(thisBytes[i]);
    }
    catch(UnknownHostException ex)
    {
    }

For the IPAddress 192.168.1.11 ,  the byte order address is 2147483647.
This is Network Byte order.

You mean you want it as an integer?

Are you certain about that?

An XDR decoding should give you byte order.
And JAVA is completely Network Byte Order internally.
You might reverse the sequence in the code above .....

I am not very sure,

i have used the below code to get the Value.

int getAddressInByteOrder(String strIPAddress) {
            StringTokenizer st = new StringTokenizer(strIPAddress, .);
            int m = 256, n = 1, o = 2, p = 3;
            int a1 = 0, b1 = 0, c1 = 0, d1 = 0;
            while (st.hasMoreElements()) {
                  a1 = Integer.parseInt((String) st.nextElement());
                  b1 = Integer.parseInt((String) st.nextElement());
                  c1 = Integer.parseInt((String) st.nextElement());
                  d1 = Integer.parseInt((String) st.nextElement());
            }
            int com = 0;
            com += (d1 * Math.pow(m, p));
            com += (c1 * Math.pow(m, o));
            com += (b1 * Math.pow(m, n));
            com += (a1);
            return com;
      } // ending getAddressInByteOrder

I got the required result for 192.168.1.x range , but for some range of Address i am not getting the correct value.

for the range 134.27.57.127, i am supposed to get -197583994 but i am getting -2147483515.
So i would like to know if there is any other way to do this.

DO NOT USE Math.pow() WHEN DEALING WITH INTEGERS!

>>for the range 134.27.57.127,

It's not a range - it's an address ;-)

>>i am supposed to get -197583994

I don't think that's right

>>but i am getting -2147483515.

and i don't think that is either.

Try to get a definitive ip to int so it can be replicated/tested

This is the simplest way:

     InetAddress ip = InetAddress.getByName("134.27.57.127");
     byte[] bytes = ip.getAddress();
     int address = new java.math.BigInteger(bytes).intValue();
     System.out.println(address);

Pls let me know how to do.
I mean to say 134.27.57.127 's range ie  134.27.57.128...
Fine for this IP , let me know how to get definitive ip.

As in my code above ;-) That's for network byte order
