Break Statement

Posted By: Wayne Crawford     Category: Java     Views: 4587

This article explains about Break Statement in java with examples.

Break statement allows you to exit a loop from any point within its body, by passing its normal termination expression. 

When the break statement is encountered inside a loop, the loop is immediately stopped and program control resumes at the next statement following the loop.

Syntax of Break Statement


Example of Break Statement 

Example 1 : Program that displays number from command line and stops when 0 appears

class BreakStatLoop
  public static void main(String args[])
int i = 0; = Integer.parseInt(args[0]);
while(i < args.length)
if(args[i] == 0)
System.out.println(Array index " + (i+1) + " has value " + args[i++]);

// Call from command line

java BreakStatLoop 10 20 30 40 50 0


Array index 1 has value 10
Array index 2 has value 20
Array index 3 has value 30
Array index 4 has value 40
