    Default parseInt() vs. intValue()

    Hi All,

    I am VERY new to JAVA and could sure use some help with a question: what is the difference between the parseInt() and intValue() methods (besides one being a static method and the other being an instance method)?

    Thanks in advance!

    more important than the differences are their similarities: both can be found in the Integer API: Integer (Java Platform SE 6)

    You'll also find descriptions here of precisely what these methods do.

    Good luck!

    parseInt does not have the overhead of creating an Integer object, which is useful if you are wanting to parse *lots* of int's.
