Sample text

Our program looks only at the first string in the array, so the other strings are ignored. Finally, the last thing on line 5 is an open curly brace. This marks the beginning of the body of the main() method, which continues until the matching close curly brace on line 9. Methods are composed of statements, which the Java interpreter executes in sequential order. In this case, lines 6, 7, and 8 are three statements that compose the body of the main() method. Each statement ends with a semicolon to separate it from the next.

The operators used in Java to group individual tokens into larger expressions. • Statements, which group expressions and other statements to form logical chunks of Java code. • Methods (also called functions, procedures, or subroutines), which are named collections of Java statements that can be invoked by other Java code. • Classes, which are collections of methods and fields. Classes are the central program element in Java and form the basis for object-oriented programming. Chapter 3 is devoted entirely to a discussion of classes and objects.

They are ignored by the Java compiler. Java supports three types of comments. The first type is a single-line comment, which begins with the characters // and continues until the end of the current line. For example: int i = 0; // Initialize the loop variable The second kind of comment is a multiline comment. It begins with the characters / * and continues, over any number of lines, until the characters */. Any text between the /* and the */ is ignored by the Java compiler. Although this style of comment is typically used for multiline comments, it can also be used for single-line comments.
