Integer's parseInt method throws a NumberFormatException if the String parameter cannot be parsed as an int. This is the exception you're catching if the String returned by getText contains something other than digits.
There are ways to do this without throwing an exception. I don't know the "best" way, but one approach is to consider that a String is a sequence of characters, and the Character class has a method isDigit. You could test the user's input and keep asking them to correct it until it satisfies your condition.
