Break:

Break is a transfer statement which can be used either inside switch statement or inside a loop.

  • The break statement, when used in switch will transfer the control from inside the switch to outside the switch, so that we skip the execution of removing cases.
  • The break statement, when used in loop, will transfer the control from inside the loop to outside the loop, so that we will skip the execution of remaining iterations.

Note: When we are specifying the break statement in a loop we are recommended to specify the break statement along with condition.

Program:

class BreakDemo{
   public static void main(string[] args){
     int sum=0, capacity=15;
     for(int i=1, i<=100; i++){
         System.out.println(i);
         sum=sum+i;
         if(sum>=capacity)
          break;
      }
   System.out.print.ln(sum);
  }
}

Continue:

continue is a transfer statement which has to be used only in loops. The continue statements will skip the current iteration and continues with the remaining iterations.

Note:

When we are specifying a continue statement in a loop, then we are recommended to specify the continue statement along with a condition.

Program:

class ContinueDemo{
   public static void main(string[] args){
     
     for(int i=1, i<=20; i++){
         
         if(i==7|i==13)
          continue;
         System.out.print.ln(i);
      }
  
  }
}
