Switch Statement Java Multiple Cases


Switch statement is used to execute a block of statement based on the switch expression value. An expression must be of type int, short, byte or char. A case value should be a constant literal value and can not be duplicated. Expression value is compared with each case value. If a match found corresponding block of statements will be executed. A break statement is used to terminate the execution of statements. If no case value matches with expression value then default block of statements will be executed. If break statement is not used within case, all matching cases will be executed.

Syntax:

switch(expression){
                case value1:
                         //block of statements
                         break;
 
                case value2:
                        //block of statements
                        break;
 
                ...
 
                default:
                     //block of statements
                     break;
 
}

                        break;               
                default:
                        System.out.println("Default Case.");
