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
		//break
		for(int i=0;i<10;i++){
			if(i==5){
				System.out.println("breaking the for loop...");
				break;
			}
			System.out.println(i);
		}
	}
}

Output:
0
1
2
3
4
