I guess the first question is how the numbers are typed in. Are they typed in one per line or many per line. Haven't compiled this but this should work for one per line.
DataInputStream din = new DataInputStream(System.in);
while((String s = din.readLine()) != null)
{
int tmpValue = Integer.parseInt(s);
}
If there are many per line look at using the StringTokenizer class.

readLine() is deprecated with DataInputStream. The following can also be used instead :
System.out.println("Enter an Integer :");
BufferedReader br=new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(System.in);
int i=Integer.parseInt(br.readLine());
System.out.println("Entered Integer is :"+i);

hi,
i think u should try this.
import java.io.*;
class useint{
public static void main (String args[])
throws IOException {

BufferedReader b = new BufferedReader
(new InputStreamReader(System.in));
String string;
int i;
int sum = 0;
System.out.println("Please input numbers:");
System.out.println("Type 0 to exit");

do{
string = b.readLine();
try{
i = Integer.parseInt(string);
} catch(NumberFormatException NFE){
System.out.println("Please try again");
i = 0;
}

sum = sum + 1;
System.out.println("Count = " sum);
} while(i != 0);
}
}
