Answer-012

I just want to understand how the nested loop works? In above example value of j is evaluated at every while loop iteration or not? Can anyone explain please?

Howdy!

first, arrange the code in a more readable way. this helps to better understand what the code is trying to do:



In the code above, you'll see that the do/while loop contains an inner while loop. In the first iteration of the outer loop, the inner loop is executed and prints out k values: 012. In the second iteration (j is incremented), i is evaluated and since its value no longer satisfies the 'i++ < 3' condition (by virtue of the previous iteration), the inner loop does not execute and k value is never printed. 'j' again is incremented and performs another loop and so on.

hope this helps.

class JMM117
{ public static void main (String[] args)
{ int i = 0, j = 9;
do {
i++;
System.out.println(" before if "+i+ ","+j);

if (j-- < i++) {break;}
System.out.println("After if "+i+ ","+j);
}
while (i < 5);
System.out.print("After do while"+i + "," + j);
}}

try this
you will understand
