Casting strings

I'm a beginner and I need help!
I would like to change a string into an integer. I've tried
int number = (int) j;//j is the string here.
I've tried other things and they don't work either. Surfing the web hasn't been helping me either.
Hope someone can help!
thanks.

In Java, Strings are object references. It is illegal to cast/convert an object reference (J) to a primative (number).
What are you trying to accomplish this for?

Try the following:
String j = "2024";
int i = Integer.parseInt(j);

Thanks for the help! It worked. I was just constructing a simple program.
