Integer.MAX_VALUE is the largest integer that can be stored in an int memory location. That value is Integer.MAX_VALUE = 2147483647.

In case you are worndering, Integer.MIN_VALUE = - 2147483648.

An example from our notes in using MAX_VALUE is:

int min = Integer.MAX_VALUE;
for (int count = 0; count < numScores; count++){
System.out.print(“Enter score: );
int currentScore = console.nextInt();
if (currentScore < min){
min = currentScore;

This was used to find the minimum value. You can set an int variable equal to MAX_VALUE and then use that int variable you set to MAX_VALUE to compare it.
