Java Java Basics Perfecting the Prototype Conditional ints

When would we ever use anything other than System.exit(0);? What is the point of telling something to *not* exit?

I know this is still in the Java Basics course, and I'm very new to this language, but I am just having trouble wrapping my head around the point of having 0 after a system exit. What scenarios would you ever use 1 for? In my mind, if you don't want it to exit, you would just omit that whole line. Right?

int numberOfPeople = 3;
if (numberOfPeople < 4) {
 console.printf("Your table is ready");
