How to print the pattern of stars in JShell in Java 9?

JavaObject Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

JShell is a REPL tool introduced in Java 9 that allows us to execute Java code and getting results immediately. We can evaluate expressions or simple algorithms without creating a new project, compile or build it by using JShell. We can also execute expressions, use imports, define classes, methods, and variables. It is a part of Java 9 JDK but not JRE.

We can start JShell session in command-prompt by simply typing jshell. We can use different commands: /exit to quit the JShell session, reset/reload JShell anytime by typing /reset, and /reload, /import to list the imports, etc.

In the below example, we can print the stars in JShell by using the "for" loop.
