The continue statement in java lets the developers to skip the current iteration within the loop statements like for , while or do-while . As soon as the java compiler figures out the continue keyword in the code , it immediately skips the statements that follow the continue keyword and then proceeds with the next iteration.

The break statement jumps out of the loop completely whereas the continue just skips the current iteration.
