Java – for loop1 min read

The Java for loop allows the user to iterate a part of the program multiple times. If a user is certain about how many specific numbers of times the loop must be executed then for loop is recommended. It is also an entry-control loop but here flow control contains three steps:

  • initialization = The first step is the initialization of the variable and is executed only once. And need to end with a semicolon(;).
  • condition = Second is condition check, it checks for a boolean expression. If true then enter the block and if false exit the loop. And need to end with a semicolon(;).
  • Increment or Decrement = The third one is increment or decrement of the variable for the next iteration. Here, we need to use the semicolon(;).
