Calculating Primes: using continue statement and label : Continue Statement « Statement Control « Java Tutorial





continue may be followed by a label to identify which enclosing loop to continue to.

public class MainClass {
  public static void main(String[] args) {
    int nValues = 50;

    OuterLoop: for (int i = 2; i <= nValues; i++) {
      for (int j = 2; j < i; j++) {
        if (i % j == 0) {
          continue OuterLoop;
        }
      }
      System.out.println(i);
    }
  }
}
