Jump Statements In Java

In this article we will show you the solution of jump statements in java, here you have to import packages, in case you using eclipse then each program have itself. After public class definition we declared variable for looping purpose.

Using for loop we showing break statement behavior. Jump statements are consist of two break and continue. Here we shown example with break statement only.

Step By Step Guide On Jump Statements In Java :-

Package is must for each program that stores you defined class and methods with supporting imports. or else they cannot understand the code which you defined inside.

The class and void main definition are common and necessary thing actually for each program. Usually, break statement helps to control the particular iteration at any point then transfer to out of loop and get terminates.

//Jump Statement
package samples;
class Jump_prgm{
    public static void main(String args[])
     int i;
      System.out.println("i = "+i);
  1. The ‘Package samples’ may differ as per developer definition and its container name where your overall data stored it. Actually it’s a namespace that organizes a set of related classes and interfaces.
  2. The ‘public static void main(String[] args)’ is starting point from where compiler starts program execution.
  3. Without this you can compile but not possible to run successfully, because it throws error ‘main method not found’.
  4. To iterate the loop you need a variable for that reason we declared variable 'i'-integer datatype.
  5. Then you have to declare for loop, which consists of three parts. First part of 'i=0' specifies initialization, second part 'i<10' specifies condition, third part 'i++' specifies loop increment.
  6. So it will executes particular block of code until reaches conditional statement become true. Here we printed i values through println with string 'i=', within that we defined one condition using if().
  7. For proceeds break action on particular state, the i variable when increament as 4 then it will breaks the loop and exited out of loop.
  8. Then it stops the overall execution, so its output from 0 to 4 then get stopped there.
  9. The ‘system.out.println()’ is used to print an argument that is passed to it. And which is separate into three parts such as System- final class in java, out-instance of PrintStream type that is a public and static member field of System class, println()-instance of PrintStream class hence we can invoke same on out.
  10. Ensure each brackets has closed with its pair perfectly at the end. Then every statement must end by ‘;’.

Conclusion :-

In conclusion now we are able to know how to define and use jump statement in java.

To compile java program you need to tell the java compiler which program to compile through ‘javac’.

After successful compilation you need to execute ‘java Jump_prgm‘ line for gets the output.

Then you can see output 'i = 0, i = 1, i = 2, i = 3, i = 4' and terminated otherwise, it will displays until value 9. On eclipse just press of run button then you will get output inside terminal.

I hope this article on jump statements in java helps you and the steps and method mentioned above are easy to follow and implement.
