    Default another unreachable statement..

    public class Sample {
     
        public static void main(String[] args) {
     
            int loopKey;
            int x = 1;
     
     
            while (false) { //unreachable statement.
     
                System.out.println("ZABDIEL");
            }
        }
     
    }
    is it because there is no false condition to stop the loop?

    Since the condition block in the while will ALWAYS be false, the code in the while block can NEVER happen. Therefore, unreachable code block.

    Yeah because in a do/while the code block will ALWAYS run once, no matter what the condition is.
