Continue statement in java


Advertisements


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;
