What is a continue statement in Java and how to use it?

Java 8Object Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

The continue keyword can be used in any of the loop control structures. It causes the loop to immediately jump to the next iteration of the loop.

  •  In a for loop, the continue keyword causes control to immediately jump to the update statement.
  •  In a while loop or do/while loop, control immediately jumps to the Boolean expression.

Syntax

The syntax of a continue is a single statement inside any loop −

continue;

Example

public class Test {
   public static void main(String args[]) {
      int [] numbers = {10, 20, 30, 40, 50};
      for(int x : numbers ) {
         if( x == 30 ) {
            continue;
         }
         System.out.print(x);
         System.out.print("\n");
      }
   }
}

Output
