I saw this code:

public class Counter {
int i;
public String toString() { return Integer.toString(i); }
}

And I was wondering, how could he overload the Integer toString method with an i parameter? I think I'm missing something here...

Anyone could help me out here please?

thanks in advance

Integer.toString(i) takes an int, the value of i in this case, and returns the String representation of this value.

The API is your friend. Take a look at the .toString() methods.
