I think "if (s == null)" or "Objects.requireNonNull(s)" is preferable to s.getClass(). (I am informed by those more knowledgeable than i that the latter also has poorer performance in the client compiler.)

Related to the above, it might be preferable to retain the existing semantics of throwing NumberFormatException on a null string value, since someone might switch between parseInt(String ) and parseInt(String, int, int, int) and the null will then slip through the catch of NumberFormatException.

You could just use IndexOutOfBoundsException for the case of beginIndex < 0 and beginIndex >= endIndex and endIndex > s.length(), as is similarly the case for String.substring. Again, like previously, switching between parseInt(String, int, int) parseInt(String, int, int, int) requires no additional catching. You might want to add a comment in the code that some IndexOutOfBoundsException exceptions are implicit via calls to s.charAt (i did a double take before realizing :-) ).

Integer.requireNonEmpty could be a static package private method on String (or perhaps even static public, it seems useful), plus i would not bother with the static import in this case.

In Integer.java#643 you can combine the if statements like you have done for the equivalent method on Long.
