In Java programming language supports 3 types of controlling statements such as: break statement, continue statement and return statement etc.
Other-then Java programming language the break statement is used in other programming languages such as C, C++. In case we want to exit from a loop before the completion of the loop program we uses the break statement and exit from the loop and loop is terminated. Sometimes we do not need to execute some statements under the loop then we use the continue statement that stops the normal flow of the control and control returns to the loop without executing the statements written after the continue statement.
