Continue Statement

Posted By: Dorothy Taylor     Category: Java     Views: 5254

This article explains about continue statement in java with examples.

Continue statement forces the iteration of the loop to take place, skipping any code in between itself and the test condition of the loop.

In while and do-whileloops, a continue statement will cause control to go directly to the test condition and then continue the looping process. 
In for loop, the increment part of the loop is performed, the conditional test is executed and the loop continues.     

Syntax of Continue Statement


Example of Continue Statement 

Example 1 : Program to print even numbers

class EvenNumberLoop
  public static void main(String args[])
for(int i = 1; i <= 10; i++)
System.out.println("Even Numbers : ");

if(i%2 > 0)
System.out.println(i + ", ");


Even Numbers : 2, 4, 6, 8, 10
