String to int without using Integer class in Java

An alternative to converting a String to int is using a custom implementation suing the Character.digit() method.

String number = "12345";
int radix = 10;
int result = 0;
for (int i = 0; i < number.length(); i++) {
    char c = number.charAt(i);
    int digit = Character.digit(c, radix);
    result *= radix;
    result += digit;
