I am not an expert but I have been working on a similar problem.
First of all the JTextField takes a string. So if you have to use
an integer or a float than you have to convert it. For my case
I needed float so i had to conver it.
Try this bro,
String standard = new String("1");
String newInt = new String();
JTextField newText = new JTextField(standard,5); //new textfield will
//have 1 default
newInt = newText.getText(); //newInt has string 1
Float result = new java.lang.Float(1.0); //new Float constructor
result = java.lang.Float.valueOf(result);//conversion of string
// to float
