JAVA BEGINNERS TUTORIAL – Branching Statements

The break Statement:

The break Statement is used to stop the entire loop (for loop, while loop or do-while) or a switch statement. The break keyword will stop the execution of the innermost loop and start executing the next line of code after the block.

Syntax:

break;

Example:

public class Test {

   public static void main(String args[]) {
      int [] numbers = {10, 20, 30, 40, 50};

      for(int x : numbers ) {
         if( x == 30 ) {
	      break;
         }
         System.out.print( x );
         System.out.print("\n");
      }
   }
}

The continue Statement:

The continue Statement can be used in any of the loop control structures. It causes the loop to immediately jump to the next iteration of the loop. كم عدد القوارير في البولينج

  • In a for loop, the continue keyword causes flow of control to immediately jump to the update statement.
  • In a while loop or do/while loop, flow of control immediately jumps to the Boolean expression.

Syntax:

continue;

Example:

public class Test {

   public static void main(String args[]) {
      int [] numbers = {10, 20, 30, 40, 50};

      for(int x : numbers ) {
         if( x == 30 ) {
	      continue;
         }
         System.out.print( x );
         System.out.print("\n");
      }
   }
}
