I found tht error is with Continue statement...can you explain this. Continue should not be used outside the loop. How can I change this code runnable

public class Example1 {


public static void main(String[] args) {

int i=0;
label:
if(i<2){
System.out.println("I is :" +i);
i++;
continue label;
}
}
}

Thanks...

A label provides a statement with an identifier that lets you refer to it elsewhere in your program. For example, you can use a label to identify a loop, and then use the break or continue statements to indicate whether a program should interrupt the loop or continue its execution.

"If" statement is not a loop statement.
Label Statement

Hai Supriya, plz send the full code so that v can help u.
Contiue can be used only inside loops and if is not a loop. Further the label used for continue should be a loop label.

hi Supriya !
u can try in this way

public class Example1 {
public static void main(String[] args) {
int i=0;
label:
for (i=0;i<5;i++){
System.out.println("I is :" +i);
i++;
if(i<2)
continue label;
}
}
}

u can put a loop around it

public class Example {


public static void main(String[] args) {

int i=0;
label:
while(true)
{
if(i<2){
System.out.println("I is :" +i);
i++;
continue label;
}
}
}
}
