Java Jump Statements

                                Java Jump Statements

Java supports three jump statements: break, continue, and return. These statements transfer control to another part of your program.


In java, the break statement has three uses. First, it terminates a statement sequence in a switch statement. Second, it can be used to exit a loop. Third, it can be used as a civilized form of goto.


If you want to force an early iteration of a loop. Then you can use continue statement. In while and do-while loop's end. The continue statement caused control to be transferred directly to the conditional expression that controls the loop. In for loop, control goes first to the iteration portion of the for statement and then to the conditional expression.


The return statement is used to explicitly return from a method. That is, it causes program control to transfer back to the caller of the method.
