its used to convert (parse) values of any data type to integer type!
in java if we use the BufferedReader to input some value, it will be of string type by default so to get an integer value we parse it.

BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new InputStremReader(;   
String s = br.readLine();                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      
int rollno = Integer.parseInt(s); //will parse the string s to its integer equivalent

What that method does, is it takes a String and makes it an Integer.

Here's an example:
String numOfWhatever = "52"

//This method takes an integer as a parameter
//You can't call howManyWhatever(numOfWhatever) because numOfWhatever is a String
//So, you need to make the String and Integer.

int whateverCount = Integer.parseInt(numOfWhatever);

//This makes whateverCount be equal to numOfWhatever, except whateverCount is an Integer.
//Now you can use whateverCount in the howManyWhatever() method.
