Continue Statement in Java

This example shows how to use the continue statement in Java programming. In my previous example I have explained about the break statement which is useful for termination the look and come out of it. However, in certain cases one might want to terminate only the current iteration and skip to the next iteration. In that scenario, one might fine continue statement is very useful. Here I have written a very simple example to explain the continue statement and its usage. If you have any questions, please write it in the comments section.

package javabeat.net.core;

import java.util.ArrayList;
/**

public class ContinueExample {
	public static void main(String args[]){
		ArrayList<String> days = new ArrayList<String>();
		days.add("Monday");
		days.add("Tuesday");
		days.add("Wednesday");
		days.add("Thursday");
		days.add("Friday");
		days.add("Saturday");
		days.add("Sunday");
		for (String str : days){
			if (str.equals("Wednesday")){
				System.out.println("Today is Wednessday!!!. I am skiping it");
				continue;
			}
			System.out.println("Day : " + str );
		}

	}
}

Output

Day : Monday
Day : Tuesday
Today is Wednessday!!!. I am skiping it
Day : Thursday
Day : Friday
Day : Saturday
Day : Sunday
