break statement in java

The break statement is one of the control statement in java. The break statement is generally used to break the loop before the completion of the loop. The break statement is used when we want to jump out of a single loop or single case in switch statement.

Here is a simple example for break statement:

package com.java2novice.loops;

public class SimpleBreakEx {

        public static void main(String a[]){
                //the for loop suppose to iterate 10 times.
                //but when i reaches to 5, the loop is going to
                for(int i=0;i<10;i++){
                                System.out.println("breaking the for loop...");

What is fail-fast in java?
A fail-fast system is nothing but immediately report any failure that is likely to lead to failure. When a problem occurs, a fail-fast system fails immediately. In Java, we can find this behavior with iterators. Incase, you have called iterator on a collection object, and another thread tries to modify the collection object, then concurrent modification exception will be thrown. This is called fail-fast.
