Hi,

What's the correct way to parse a hex integer string?:

    String str = "0xFF222222";
 
    int val = Integer.parseInt(str, 16);

The above throws a number format exception.

Thanks

            String hex = "FF22222";
                    long num = Long.parseLong(hex,16);
      System.out.println("num: " + num);

output:
num: 267526690

That is exactly your number:

 String hex = "FF222222";
                    long num = Long.parseLong(hex,16);
      System.out.println("num: " + num);

num: 4280427042

When parsing a hex string you need to remove the 0x from the string as for_yan has mentioned above.
The 0x is not part of the actual hex value you are parsing.
