String str = "1234";
int num = Integer.parseInt(str);

To convert a number into a string, use:

int num = 1234;   
String str = String.valueOf(num);

Integer.valueOf is fastest because it uses cached instance. So if there already exists a Integer in pool with value 98989,
that will be returned instead of creating new Integer instance.

Check this for details.
