compile and run this... it counts from 1 to 10 because of the for loop.
"i is set to "1"
for( int i = 1 ;
and is incremented by 1 each "loop"
i++ );
until it is "<= 10"
i <= 10 ;
then the loop terminates.

Loops are basically used for iterations(repeatation). It's not only in java but used in other computer languages also for the same purpose. For eg. if u to print your name ten times. There
are two approaches to this problem.
1) is to write the statement System.out.println("Your Name"); ten times. This is not appreciable because it makes your code longer and inefficient.
2)The other is to use a for loop,while loop or a do-while loop.

The syntax for the For loop is
for(initialization_expression;conditonal_expression;increment_expression)
{
body of loop
}
lets implement the example stated above using the for loop.
class yname
{
public static void main (String [] args)
{
int i=1;
for(i=1;i<11;i++)
{
