Prime number in Java: Prime number is a number that is greater than 1 and divided by 1 or itself. In other words, prime numbers can't be divided by other numbers than itself or 1. For example 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17.... are the prime numbers.

#### Note: 0 and 1 are not prime numbers. 2 is the only even prime number because all the numbers can be divided by 2.

Let's see the prime number program in java. In this java program, we will take a number variable and check whether the number is prime or not.

1. class PrimeExample{
2.  public static void main(String args[]){
3.   int i,m=0,flag=0;
4.   int n=17;//it is the number to be checked
5.   m=n/2;
6.   for(i=2;i<=m;i++){
7.    if(n%i==0){
8.    System.out.println("Number is not prime");
9.    flag=1;
10.    break;
11.    }
12.   }
13.   if(flag==0)
14.   System.out.println("Number is prime");
15. }
16. }

Output:

```Number is prime
```
