You can use regular expression to validate the string as integer or real.

hi,
java parttern 'shortcut' for that :

\d  : A digit:
\D  :  A non-digit:

you can use a tFilterRow tocheck with contains or matches method.

use tFilterRow. By that way you can have a flow with data matching pattern & reject flow (data doesn't).
see link above to documentation & example from Talend help.
ps : remember that you have shortcut 'F1' to get help for every component directly from your Talend Studio.
