core java. isInteger methods. Finding bug.

public static int isInputInteger(){
		@SuppressWarnings("resource")
		Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);   

		int correctNumber;
		
			while(true){   
			input.nextLine();
				    if(input.hasNextInt()){   
				    	correctNumber = input.nextInt();
				        break;
				    }
				    else{
				    	System.out.println("Your input isn't integer.Please, try again. ");
				    }
			}
			return correctNumber;
			}

class PrintFromInput {

	protected static int  printNumber() {
    	System.out.printf("Please, enter integer: ");
    	int intYourConsoleInput = Assert.isInputInteger();
         return intYourConsoleInput; 
    }
}

public class Task {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
    	
    	System.out.println("Congratulation! Your correct integer input is: "+ PrintFromInput.printNumber()); 
    	
    }
}

Inside class Assert there is a method "isInputInteger" everything work but not as I expect :
Session 1
input : f
output: {nothing }
input : f
output : Your input isn't integer.Please, try again.
input: g
output : Your input isn't integer.Please, try again.
input : 3
Congratulation! Your correct integer input is: 3
Session OVER
My question is why there isn't any message after first "f". Please, help me to find bug. Thx in advance !

At first glance, maybe because you are advancing the scanner too early.

why don'y you try setting breakpoints and debugging to find out what going on?

C++ 11 Fundamentals

This course will introduce you to C++ 11 and teach you about syntax fundamentals.

James BilousSoftware EngineerCommented:
I believe OP needs the nextLine() read in order to advance the scanner past the '\n' character after the integer is read. I would simply move it to the end of the while loop instead of at the beginning.

Yes, indeed.  I thought the OP would be able to work out the required code move once he sees the result of just deleting it.

CEHJCommented:
That code is wrong in so many ways that it's hard to know where to begin. Let's begin with the first line:

a. your code has the name of a boolean method yet it returns int. Why?
b. in the event of your replying that you misnamed the method then why do you skip a line of input (which could have contained an int)?

krakatoaCommented:
I think if you just want to get your loop working, you can go along these lines:

while (true){
		System.out.println("Input a number");
		if(!(scanner.hasNextInt())){System.out.println("Your input isn't integer.Please, try again. ");scanner.next();continue;}		
		correctNumber = scanner.nextInt();			
}

The solution is :
public static int onlyIntegerInput(){
		@SuppressWarnings("resource")
		Scanner scanner = new Scanner(System.in);   

		int correctNumber;
		
		while (true){

			if(!(scanner.hasNextInt())){
				System.out.println("Your input isn't integer. Please, try again. ");
				scanner.next();
				continue;
				}
			else{
			correctNumber = scanner.nextInt();
			break;
			}
		}
			return correctNumber;
