Before you build any significant Java application, it is important to get familiar with controlling the flow of code using control structures — a fundamental concept in any programming language. And this is precisely the focus of this course. With the help of this course, you'll learn how to work with basic if statements, where code is executed if a certain condition is met and if-else and switch statements, which allow you to check for multiple conditions and run chunks of code accordingly. You'll then delve into for and while loops, which allow you to define a block of code that needs to be executed repeatedly under specific conditions and recognize the use of continue and break statements that influence their behavior. After finishing this course, you'll have the knowledge and skills to control the flow of code execution in your program based on the value of variables or the outcome of operations.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • discover the key concepts covered in this course
    accept user input and implement conditional execution using if statements
    recognize the syntax of if statements and make use of else blocks
    use multiple if statements and explore the use of else-if blocks
    demonstrate how for loops can be used to iterate the contents of a string or array
    use switch statements to select categories based on a value
  • describe the different ways in which for loops can be applied, such as nested for loops
    create a for loop and use the break and continue keywords to control its flow
    use while loops to perform operations while a condition is true
    manually compile and run Java code from the command line
    develop and run a Java program that accepts input from the command line
