Java Keywords

  1. abstract: Java abstract keyword is used to declare abstract class. Abstract class can provide the implementation of interface. It can have abstract and non-abstract methods.
  2. boolean: Java boolean keyword is used to declare a variable as a boolean type. It can hold True and False values only.
  3. break: Java break keyword is used to break loop or switch statement. It breaks the current flow of the program at specified condition.
  4. byte: Java byte keyword is used to declare a variable that can hold an 8-bit data values.
  5. case: Java case keyword is used to with the switch statements to mark blocks of text.
  6. catch: Java catch keyword is used to catch the exceptions generated by try statements. It must be used after the try block only.
  7. char: Java char keyword is used to declare a variable that can hold unsigned 16-bit Unicode characters
  8. class: Java class keyword is used to declare a class.
  9. continue: Java continue keyword is used to continue the loop. It continues the current flow of the program and skips the remaining code at the specified condition.
  10. default: Java default keyword is used to specify the default block of code in a switch statement.
  11. do: Java do keyword is used in control statement to declare a loop. It can iterate a part of the program several times.
  12. double: Java double keyword is used to declare a variable that can hold a 64-bit floating-point numbers.
  13. else: Java else keyword is used to indicate the alternative branches in an if statement.
  14. enum: Java enum keyword is used to define a fixed set of constants. Enum constructors are always private or default.
  15. extends: Java extends keyword is used to indicate that a class is derived from another class or interface.
  16. final: Java final keyword is used to indicate that a variable holds a constant value. It is applied with a variable. It is used to restrict the user.
  17. finally: Java finally keyword indicates a block of code in a try-catch structure. This block is always executed whether exception is handled or not.
  18. float: Java float keyword is used to declare a variable that can hold a 32-bit floating-point number.
  19. for: Java for keyword is used to start a for loop. It is used to execute a set of instructions/functions repeatedly when some conditions become true. If the number of iteration is fixed, it is recommended to use for loop.
  20. if: Java if keyword tests the condition. It executes the if block if condition is true.
  21. implements: Java implements keyword is used to implement an interface.
  22. import: Java import keyword makes classes and interfaces available and accessible to the current source code.
  23. instanceof: Java instanceof keyword is used to test whether the object is an instance of the specified class or implements an interface.
  24. int: Java int keyword is used to declare a variable that can hold a 32-bit signed integer.
  25. interface: Java interface keyword is used to declare an interface. It can have only abstract methods.
  26. long: Java long keyword is used to declare a variable that can hold a 64-bit integer.
  27. native: Java native keyword is used to specify that a method is implemented in native code using JNI (Java Native Interface).
  28. new: Java new keyword is used to create new objects.
  29. null: Java null keyword is used to indicate that a reference does not refer to anything. It removes the garbage value.
  30. package: Java package keyword is used to declare a Java package that includes the classes.
  31. private: Java private keyword is an access modifier. It is used to indicate that a method or variable may be accessed only in the class in which it is declared.
  32. protected: Java protected keyword is an access modifier. It can be accessible within package and outside the package but through inheritance only. It can't be applied on the class.
  33. public: Java public keyword is an access modifier. It is used to indicate that an item is accessible anywhere. It has the widest scope among all other modifiers.
  34. return: Java return keyword is used to return from a method when its execution is complete.
  35. short: Java short keyword is used to declare a variable that can hold a 16-bit integer.
  36. static: Java static keyword is used to indicate that a variable or method is a class method. The static keyword in Java is used for memory management mainly.
  37. strictfp: Java strictfp is used to restrict the floating-point calculations to ensure portability.
  38. super: Java super keyword is a reference variable that is used to refer parent class object. It can be used to invoke immediate parent class method.
  39. switch: The Java switch keyword contains a switch statement that executes code based on test value. The switch statement tests the equality of a variable against multiple values.
  40. synchronized: Java synchronized keyword is used to specify the critical sections or methods in multithreaded code.
  41. this: Java this keyword can be used to refer the current object in a method or constructor.
  42. throw: The Java throw keyword is used to explicitly throw an exception. The throw keyword is mainly used to throw custom exception. It is followed by an instance.
  43. throws: The Java throws keyword is used to declare an exception. Checked exception can be propagated with throws.
  44. transient: Java transient keyword is used in serialization. If you define any data member as transient, it will not be serialized.
  45. try: Java try keyword is used to start a block of code that will be tested for exceptions. The try block must be followed by either catch or finally block.
  46. void: Java void keyword is used to specify that a method does not have a return value.
  47. volatile: Java volatile keyword is used to indicate that a variable may change asynchronously.
  48. while: Java while keyword is used to start a while loop. This loop iterates a part of the program several times. If the number of iteration is not fixed, it is recommended to use while loop.
