Trying to have a user input integers on the command line and when they want to end enter in a non integer loop should start.

I'm trying to have a user enter in a bunch of integers on the command line and it will keep prompting them for more integers until they enter in any non integer. At that point the looop should quit. However i keep getting number format exception ..

my current code
---------------------------
System.out.println("Enter in address numbers when finished just enter in an invalid input,anything besides an integer is a valid input");
                        addresses = new int[num_address];
                        int i=0;
                        boolean flag=true;
                        String test;
                while(flag == true)
                {
                              test = buffer.readLine();
                              if(!Character.isDigit(test.charAt(0)))
                              flag=false;
                              
                    else
                    {
                                addresses[i] = Integer.parseInt(buffer.readLine());
                                i++;
                            }
                        }

Try this one    System.out.println("Enter in address numbers when finished just enter in an invalid input,anything besides an integer is a valid input");

  int[] addresses = new int[100];
  BufferedReader buffer = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(System.in));
  int i = 0;
  boolean flag = true;
  String test;
  while (flag == true) {
    test = buffer.readLine();
    if (!Character.isDigit(test.charAt(0)))
      flag = false;

    else {
      addresses[i] = Integer.parseInt(test.charAt(0)+"");
      i++;
    }
  }

//You were calling readLine() a couple of times.

In addition to the problem mentioned by engineer007, your loop test should also be

while(flag == true && i < addresses.length)
0
