Problem Description

How to use continue in a method?

Solution

This example uses continue statement to jump out of a loop in a method.

public class Main {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      StringBuffer searchstr = new StringBuffer(
         "hello how are you. ");
      int length = searchstr.length();
      int count = 0;
      
      for (int i = 0; i < length; i++) {
         if (searchstr.charAt(i) != 'h')continue;
         count++;
         searchstr.setCharAt(i, 'h');
      }
      System.out.println("Found " + count + " h's in the string.");
      System.out.println(searchstr);
   }
}

Result

The above code sample will produce the following result.

Found 2 h's in the string.
hello how are you. 

The following is an another example of Continue method

public class ContinueExample { 
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      for(int i = 1;i<=10;i++) {
         if(i==5) {
            continue;  
         }
         System.out.println(i);
