How can I prevent java.lang.NumberFormatException: For input string: “N/A”?

"N/A" is not an integer. It must throw NumberFormatException if you try to parse it to an integer.

Check before parsing or handle Exception properly.

  1. Exception Handlingtry{ int i = Integer.parseInt(input); } catch(NumberFormatException ex){ // handle your exception ... }

or – Integer pattern matching –

String input=...;
String pattern ="-?\\d+";
if(input.matches("-?\\d+")){ // any positive or negetive integer or not!
