Infinite Loop Using Java

Certain aspects of your code may want to perform certain activities in a loop and wait infinitely for a command. However, the "while(true)" command is an easier way to achieve the same result.

public class InfiniteLoop
{
   public static void main(String args[])
   {
      InfiniteLoop infiniteLoop = new InfiniteLoop();
      infiniteLoop.proceed();
   }
   
   private void proceed()
   {
      System.out.println("Start of infinite loop");
      boolean condition = true;
      while (condition)
      {
         System.out.println("In loop");
         //You can perfrom the actual work such as accepting unlimited requests and 
         //process them in a newly spawned thread or from a ThreadPool
         try{
            //Introducing a small delay for you to make it visible
            Thread.sleep(100);
         }catch(InterruptedException ie)
         {
            System.out.println("InterruptedException: "+ ie);
         }
      }
      //The below line cannot be reached since the above loop is infinite. 
      //However, there are other mechanisms to make it work if you can enhance your code to handle interruption
      System.out.println("End of infinite loop");
   }
}
