Java labelled statement

Java Programming Java8Java Technologies Object Oriented Programming

Yes. Java supports labeled statements. You can put a label before a for statement and use the break/continue controls to jump to that label. 

Example

See the example below.

Live Demo

public class Tester {
   public static void main(String args[]) {

      first:
         for (int i = 0; i < 3; i++) {
            for (int j = 0; j < 3; j++){
               if(i == 1){
                  continue first;
               }
               System.out.print(" [i = " + i + ", j = " + j + "] ");
            }
         }
         System.out.println();
     
      second:
         for (int i = 0; i < 3; i++) {
            for (int j = 0; j < 3; j++){
               if(i == 1){
                  break second;
               }
               System.out.print(" [i = " + i + ", j = " + j + "] ");
            }
         }
   }
}

first is the label for first outermost for loop and continue first cause the loop to skip print statement if i = 1;

second is the label for second outermost for loop and continue second cause the loop to break the loop.
