continue statement

continue statement can be used to start the next iteration in a for, while or do while loop. syntax examples:
	continue;
	continue 
Example 1:

public class Continue {
public static void main(String a[]){
System.out.println("Before for loop");

for(int i=1; i<=5; i++){
	System.out.print("\nloop count "
						+ i + ":");
	for(int j=1; j<=5; j++){
		if(j==i){
			continue;
		}
		System.out.print(" " + j);
	}
}

System.out.println("\n\nAfter for loop");

}
}
The above code would print:
Before for loop

loop count 1: 2 3 4 5
loop count 2: 1 3 4 5
loop count 3: 1 2 4 5
loop count 4: 1 2 3 5
loop count 5: 1 2 3 4

After for loop
Example 2:

public class ContinueLabel {
public static void main(String a[]){
System.out.println("Before for loop");
outer:
	for(int i=1; i<=5; i++){
			System.out.print("\nloop count "
								+ i + ":");
		for(int j=1; j<=5; j++){
			if(j==i){
				continue outer;
			}
			System.out.print( " " + j);
		}
	}
System.out.println("\n\n After for loop");

}
} 
The above code would print:
Before for loop

loop count 1:
loop count 2: 1
loop count 3: 1 2
loop count 4: 1 2 3
loop count 5: 1 2 3 4

After for loop
