### class:Integer [NONE]

 All Implemented Interfaces: `Serializable`, `Comparable` ```public final class Integer extends Number implements Comparable``` The `Integer` class wraps a value of the primitive type `int` in an object. An object of type `Integer` contains a single field whose type is `int`.In addition, this class provides several methods for converting an `int` to a `String` and a `String` to an `int`, as well as other constants and methods useful when dealing with an `int`. Implementation note: The implementations of the "bit twiddling" methods (such as `highestOneBit` and `numberOfTrailingZeros`) are based on material from Henry S. Warren, Jr.'s Hacker's Delight , (Addison Wesley, 2002). Since: 1.0 See Also: Serialized Form

### constructor:<init>(int) [NONE]

• #### Integer

```@Deprecated(since="9")
public Integer​(int value)```
Deprecated.
It is rarely appropriate to use this constructor. The static factory `valueOf(int)` is generally a better choice, as it is likely to yield significantly better space and time performance.
Constructs a newly allocated `Integer` object that represents the specified `int` value.
Parameters:
`value` - the value to be represented by the `Integer` object.

### constructor:<init>(java.lang.String) [NONE]

• #### Integer

```@Deprecated(since="9")
public Integer​(String s)
throws NumberFormatException
```
Deprecated.
It is rarely appropriate to use this constructor. Use `parseInt(String)` to convert a string to a `int` primitive, or use `valueOf(String)` to convert a string to an `Integer` object.
Constructs a newly allocated `Integer` object that represents the `int` value indicated by the `String` parameter. The string is converted to an `int` value in exactly the manner used by the `parseInt` method for radix 10.
Parameters:
`s` - the `String` to be converted to an `Integer`.
Throws:
`NumberFormatException` - if the `String` does not contain a parsable integer.

### method:toString(int,int) [NONE]

• #### toString

```public static String toString​(int i,
Returns a string representation of the first argument in the radix specified by the second argument.

If the radix is smaller than `Character.MIN_RADIX` or larger than `Character.MAX_RADIX`, then the radix `10` is used instead.

If the first argument is negative, the first element of the result is the ASCII minus character `'-'` (`'\u002D'`). If the first argument is not negative, no sign character appears in the result.

The remaining characters of the result represent the magnitude of the first argument. If the magnitude is zero, it is represented by a single zero character `'0'` (`'\u0030'`); otherwise, the first character of the representation of the magnitude will not be the zero character. The following ASCII characters are used as digits:

`0123456789abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz`
These are `'\u0030'` through `'\u0039'` and `'\u0061'` through `'\u007A'`. If `radix` is N, then the first N of these characters are used as radix-N digits in the order shown. Thus, the digits for hexadecimal (radix 16) are `0123456789abcdef`. If uppercase letters are desired, the `String.toUpperCase()` method may be called on the result:
`Integer.toString(n, 16).toUpperCase() `
Parameters:
`i` - an integer to be converted to a string.
`radix` - the radix to use in the string representation.
Returns:
a string representation of the argument in the specified radix.
`Character.MAX_RADIX`, `Character.MIN_RADIX`

### method:toUnsignedString(int,int) [NONE]

• #### toUnsignedString

```public static String toUnsignedString​(int i,
Returns a string representation of the first argument as an unsigned integer value in the radix specified by the second argument.

If the radix is smaller than `Character.MIN_RADIX` or larger than `Character.MAX_RADIX`, then the radix `10` is used instead.

Note that since the first argument is treated as an unsigned value, no leading sign character is printed.

If the magnitude is zero, it is represented by a single zero character `'0'` (`'\u0030'`); otherwise, the first character of the representation of the magnitude will not be the zero character.

The behavior of radixes and the characters used as digits are the same as `toString`.

Parameters:
`i` - an integer to be converted to an unsigned string.
`radix` - the radix to use in the string representation.
Returns:
an unsigned string representation of the argument in the specified radix.
Since:
1.8
`toString(int, int) `

### method:toHexString(int) [NONE]

• #### toHexString

`public static String toHexString​(int i)`
Returns a string representation of the integer argument as an unsigned integer in base 16.

The unsigned integer value is the argument plus 232 if the argument is negative; otherwise, it is equal to the argument. This value is converted to a string of ASCII digits in hexadecimal (base 16) with no extra leading `0`s.

The value of the argument can be recovered from the returned string `s` by calling `Integer.parseUnsignedInt(s, 16) `.

If the unsigned magnitude is zero, it is represented by a single zero character `'0'` (`'\u0030'`); otherwise, the first character of the representation of the unsigned magnitude will not be the zero character. The following characters are used as hexadecimal digits:

`0123456789abcdef`
These are the characters `'\u0030'` through `'\u0039'` and `'\u0061'` through `'\u0066'`. If uppercase letters are desired, the `String.toUpperCase()` method may be called on the result:
`Integer.toHexString(n).toUpperCase()`
Parameters:
`i` - an integer to be converted to a string.
Returns:
the string representation of the unsigned integer value represented by the argument in hexadecimal (base 16).

### method:toOctalString(int) [NONE]

• #### toOctalString

`public static String toOctalString​(int i)`
Returns a string representation of the integer argument as an unsigned integer in base 8.

The unsigned integer value is the argument plus 232 if the argument is negative; otherwise, it is equal to the argument. This value is converted to a string of ASCII digits in octal (base 8) with no extra leading `0`s.

The value of the argument can be recovered from the returned string `s` by calling `Integer.parseUnsignedInt(s, 8) `.

If the unsigned magnitude is zero, it is represented by a single zero character `'0'` (`'\u0030'`); otherwise, the first character of the representation of the unsigned magnitude will not be the zero character. The following characters are used as octal digits:

`01234567`
These are the characters `'\u0030'` through `'\u0037'`.
Parameters:
`i` - an integer to be converted to a string.
Returns:
the string representation of the unsigned integer value represented by the argument in octal (base 8).

The unsigned integer value is the argument plus 232 if the argument is negative; otherwise it is equal to the argument. This value is converted to a string of ASCII digits in binary (base 2) with no extra leading `0`s.

The value of the argument can be recovered from the returned string `s` by calling `Integer.parseUnsignedInt(s, 2) `.

If the unsigned magnitude is zero, it is represented by a single zero character `'0'` (`'\u0030'`); otherwise, the first character of the representation of the unsigned magnitude will not be the zero character. The characters `'0'` (`'\u0030'`) and ` '1' ` (`'\u0031'`) are used as binary digits.

Parameters:
`i` - an integer to be converted to a string.

The string value of this property is then interpreted as an integer value using the grammar supported by `decode` and an `Integer` object representing this value is returned.

The second argument is the default value. An `Integer` object that represents the value of the second argument is returned if there is no property of the specified name, if the property does not have the correct numeric format, or if the specified name is empty or `null`.

In other words, this method returns an `Integer` object equal to the value of:

`getInteger(nm, new Integer(val)) `
but in practice it may be implemented in a manner such as:
``` Integer result = getInteger(nm, null);
return (result == null) ? new Integer(val) : result;
```
to avoid the unnecessary allocation of an `Integer` object when the default value is not needed.
Parameters:
`nm` - property name.
`val` - default value.
Returns:
the `Integer` value of the property.
Throws:
`SecurityException` - for the same reasons as `System.getProperty`

Returns the integer value of the system property with the specified name. The first argument is treated as the name of a system property. System properties are accessible through the `System.getProperty(java.lang.String)` method. The string value of this property is then interpreted as an integer value, as per the `decode` method, and an `Integer` object representing this value is returned; in summary:

The second argument is the default value. The default value is returned if there is no property of the specified name, if the property does not have the correct numeric format, or if the specified name is empty or `null`.

Parameters:
`nm` - property name.
`val` - default value.
Returns:

Signopt`0`OctalDigits
Sign:
`-`
`+`
DecimalNumeral, HexDigits, and OctalDigits are as defined in section 3.10.1 of The Java™ Language Specification , except that underscores are not accepted between digits.

The sequence of characters following an optional sign and/or radix specifier ("`0x`", "`0X`", "`#`", or leading zero) is parsed as by the ` Integer.parseInt ` method with the indicated radix (10, 16, or 8). This sequence of characters must represent a positive value or a `NumberFormatException` will be thrown. The result is negated if first character of the specified ` String ` is the minus sign. No whitespace characters are permitted in the `String`.

Parameters:
`nm` - the `String` to decode.
Returns:
an `Integer` object holding the `int` value represented by `nm`

### method:toUnsignedLong(int) [NONE]

• #### toUnsignedLong

`public static long toUnsignedLong​(int x)`
Converts the argument to a `long` by an unsigned conversion. In an unsigned conversion to a `long`, the high-order 32 bits of the `long` are zero and the low-order 32 bits are equal to the bits of the integer argument. Consequently, zero and positive `int` values are mapped to a numerically equal `long` value and negative ` int ` values are mapped to a `long` value equal to the input plus 232.
Parameters:
`x` - the value to convert to an unsigned `long`
Returns:
the argument converted to `long` by an unsigned conversion
Since:
1.8

### method:divideUnsigned(int,int) [NONE]

• #### divideUnsigned

```public static int divideUnsigned​(int dividend,
int divisor)```
Returns the unsigned quotient of dividing the first argument by the second where each argument and the result is interpreted as an unsigned value.

Note that in two's complement arithmetic, the three other basic arithmetic operations of add, subtract, and multiply are bit-wise identical if the two operands are regarded as both being signed or both being unsigned. Therefore separate ` addUnsigned `, etc. methods are not provided.

Parameters:
`dividend` - the value to be divided
`divisor` - the value doing the dividing
Returns:
the unsigned quotient of the first argument divided by the second argument
Since:
1.8
`remainderUnsigned(int, int) `

### method:remainderUnsigned(int,int) [NONE]

• #### remainderUnsigned

Returns the unsigned remainder from dividing the first argument by the second where each argument and the result is interpreted as an unsigned value.
Parameters:
`dividend` - the value to be divided
`divisor` - the value doing the dividing
Returns:
the unsigned remainder of the first argument divided by the second argument

### method:highestOneBit(int) [NONE]

• #### highestOneBit

`public static int highestOneBit​(int i)`
Returns an `int` value with at most a single one-bit, in the position of the highest-order ("leftmost") one-bit in the specified `int` value. Returns zero if the specified value has no one-bits in its two's complement binary representation, that is, if it is equal to zero.
Parameters:
`i` - the value whose highest one bit is to be computed
Returns:
an `int` value with a single one-bit, in the position of the highest-order one-bit in the specified value, or zero if the specified value is itself equal to zero.
Since:

### method:lowestOneBit(int) [NONE]

• #### lowestOneBit

`public static int lowestOneBit​(int i)`
Returns an `int` value with at most a single one-bit, in the position of the lowest-order ("rightmost") one-bit in the specified `int` value. Returns zero if the specified value has no one-bits in its two's complement binary representation, that is, if it is equal to zero.
Parameters:
`i` - the value whose lowest one bit is to be computed
Returns:
an `int` value with a single one-bit, in the position of the lowest-order one-bit in the specified value, or zero if the specified value is itself equal to zero.
Since:

`public static int numberOfLeadingZeros​(int i)`
Returns the number of zero bits preceding the highest-order ("leftmost") one-bit in the two's complement binary representation of the specified `int` value. Returns 32 if the specified value has no one-bits in its two's complement representation, in other words if it is equal to zero.

Note that this method is closely related to the logarithm base 2. For all positive `int` values x:

• floor(log2(x)) = `31 - numberOfLeadingZeros(x) `
• ceil(log2(x)) = `32 - numberOfLeadingZeros(x - 1) `

Parameters:
`i` - the value whose number of leading zeros is to be computed
Returns:
the number of zero bits preceding the highest-order ("leftmost") one-bit in the two's complement binary representation of the specified `int` value, or 32 if the value is equal to zero.
Since:
1.5

### method:numberOfTrailingZeros(int) [NONE]

• #### numberOfTrailingZeros

`public static int numberOfTrailingZeros​(int i)`
Returns the number of zero bits following the lowest-order ("rightmost") one-bit in the two's complement binary representation of the specified `int` value. Returns 32 if the specified value has no one-bits in its two's complement representation, in other words if it is equal to zero.
Parameters:
`i` - the value whose number of trailing zeros is to be computed
Returns:
the number of zero bits following the lowest-order ("rightmost") one-bit in the two's complement binary representation of the specified `int` value, or 32 if the value is equal to zero.

### method:bitCount(int) [NONE]

• #### bitCount

`public static int bitCount​(int i)`

### method:rotateLeft(int,int) [NONE]

• #### rotateLeft

```public static int rotateLeft​(int i,
int distance)```
Returns the value obtained by rotating the two's complement binary representation of the specified `int` value left by the specified number of bits. (Bits shifted out of the left hand, or high-order, side reenter on the right, or low-order.)

Note that left rotation with a negative distance is equivalent to right rotation: `rotateLeft(val, -distance) == rotateRight(val, distance) `. Note also that rotation by any multiple of 32 is a no-op, so all but the last five bits of the rotation distance can be ignored, even if the distance is negative: `rotateLeft(val, distance) == rotateLeft(val, distance & 0x1F) `.

Parameters:
`i` - the value whose bits are to be rotated left
`distance` - the number of bit positions to rotate left
Returns:
the value obtained by rotating the two's complement binary representation of the specified `int` value left by the specified number of bits.

Note that right rotation with a negative distance is equivalent to left rotation: `rotateRight(val, -distance) == rotateLeft(val, distance) `. Note also that rotation by any multiple of 32 is a no-op, so all but the last five bits of the rotation distance can be ignored, even if the distance is negative: `rotateRight(val, distance) == rotateRight(val, distance & 0x1F) `.

Parameters:
`i` - the value whose bits are to be rotated right
