    Default Simple Question: How do I input an exit code into my program?

    I just want to know how I can get my program to end when the user inputs "0." By using: System.exit(0);

    import java.util.Scanner; 
     
    public class TestCode
    {    
        public static void main (String [ ]args )
        {
            Scanner console =new Scanner(System.in); 
            System.out.println("To exit program input 0");   
            for (int y = 1; y < 11; y++ ){ // Executes output 10 times 
     
     
            System.out.println("Enter the year please:");     
            int year = console.nextInt(); 
     
     
            if (year >= 1900) {
            boolean answer = isLeapYear (year);
                if(answer) {      
     
           System.out.println("The given year is a leap year"); } 
               else { 
           System.out.println("The given year is not a leap year"); }  }
               else {       
           System.out.println("Value is invalid! Number is less than 1900.");     
       }           
      }
     }         
        public static boolean isLeapYear(int y) //y = year
         {
            if ((y % 400 == 0) || ((y % 4 == 0) && (y % 100 != 0))) // Algorithim used for calculating leap years.
            {
                   return true;
            } else {
                   return false;
           }    
       }
    }

    Any help is appreciated, thank you for your time .

    You already check the input, just add another check.
