hi guys
i think this is easy..

I have a field where users can enter a number, but the number must be a positive integer
like 10, 20 ect . i want to check if the number is negative  
something like

if(the integer is negative or starts with a minus '-' sign)

{
System.out.println("Please enter positive integer only"); //display this in console
}

any ideas how i can do that in java

thanks
J
