continue;

continue; key word would start the next iteration upon invocation

For Example

for(int i= 0 ; i < 5; i++){
 if(i==2){
  continue;
 }
System.out.print(i);
}

This will print

0134

Try this,

1. If you want to skip a particular iteration, use continue.

2. If you want to break out of the immediate loop use break

3 If there are 2 loop, outer and inner.... and you want to break out of both the loop from the inner loop, use break with label.

eg:

continue

for(int i=0 ; i<5 ; i++){

    if (i==2){

      continue;
    }
 }

eg:

break

for(int i=0 ; i<5 ; i++){

        if (i==2){

          break;
        }
     }

eg:

break with label

lab1: for(int j=0 ; j<5 ; j++){
     for(int i=0 ; i<5 ; i++){

        if (i==2){

          break lab1;
        }
     }
  }
