Java Loop Control


Java continue statement


In java continue statement is used to continue the loop at a specified condition.

 

When continue statement is encountered inside a loop then:

  • all the statement after continue statement in the current iteration is ommited. 
  • loop control will go to the beginning of the loop for next iteration.

Let's learn how it continues the loop while skipping rest of the code with examples.

Example 1:

package Statement;

public class ContinueExample {

   public static void main(String[] args) {
      for(int num=1; num<=6; num++){
         if(num==3){
           continue;
         }
        System.out.println(num);
     }
  }
}

OUTPUT:
1
2
4
5
6
 
 
Example 2:
 
package statement;

public class ContinueExample {

     public static void main(String[] args) {
        for(int num=2; num<=4; num++){
            for(int num1=2; num1<=4; num1++){
                if(num==3 && num1==3){
                continue;
                }
             System.out.println(num+ "&"+num1);
           }
       }
   }
}

		
 
OUTPUT:
2&2
2&3
2&4
3&2
3&4
4&2
4&3
4&4
