Java Control statements in a programming language control the ways the program is executed from a point to another. There are three main categories : Selection, iteration and jump.
Control statements types
Selection statement control the execution of the program, based on certain conditions. For example if a condition is true then execute some code. Selection statements are if and switch.
Iteration statements can execute more times one or more statement, until reach certain condition. Iteration statements create loops and are for, while and do-while.
Jump statements move the control to another part of the program. Jump Statements are break, continue and return.
