Java: How to Get Keys and Values from a Map

Introduction

Key-value stores are essential and often used, especially in operations that require fast and frequent lookups. They allow an object - the key - to be mapped to another object, the value. This way, the values can easily be retrieved, by looking up the key.

In Java, the most popular Map implementation is the HashMap class. Aside from key-value mapping, it’s used in code that requires frequest insertions, updates and lookups. The insert and lookup time is a constant O(1).

In this tutorial, we’ll go over how to get the Keys and Values of a map in Java.

How to Install OpenJDK 11 on CentOS 8

What is OpenJDK?

OpenJDk or Open Java Development Kit is a free, open-source framework of the Java Platform, Standard Edition (or Java SE). It contains the virtual machine, the Java Class Library, and the Java compiler. The difference between the Oracle OpenJDK and Oracle JDK is that OpenJDK is a source code reference point for the open-source model. Simultaneously, the Oracle JDK is a continuation or advanced model of the OpenJDK, which is not open source and requires a license to use.

In this article, we will be installing OpenJDK on Centos 8.

Going Beyond Java 8: Local Variable Type Inference (var) - DZone Java

According to some surveys, such as JetBrains’s great survey, Java 8 is currently the most used version of Java, despite being a 2014 release.

What you are reading is one in a series of articles titled ‘Going beyond Java 8,’ inspired by the contents of my book, Java for Aliens. These articles will guide you step-by-step through the most important features introduced to the language, starting from version 9. The aim is to make you aware of how important it is to move forward from Java 8, explaining the enormous advantages that the latest versions of the language offer.

In this article, we will talk about the most important new feature introduced with Java 10. Officially called local variable type inference, this feature is better known as the **introduction of the word **var. Despite the complicated name, it is actually quite a simple feature to use. However, some observations need to be made before we can see the impact that the introduction of the word var has on other pre-existing characteristics.

How to Sort a HashMap by Key in Java

In this tutorial, we’ll take a look at how to sort a HashMap by key in Java.

Let’s go ahead and create a simple HashMap:

Map<String, Integer> unsortedMap = new HashMap();

unsortedMap.put("John", 21);
unsortedMap.put("Maria", 34);
unsortedMap.put("Mark", 31);
unsortedMap.put("Sydney", 24);

unsortedMap.entrySet().forEach(System.out::println);

We’ve got Strings as keys, and Integers as values. Most of the time, you’ll encounter Integers or Strings as keys, and custom objects, Strings or Integers as values. We’ll want to sort this HashMap, based on the String keys.

HashMapdon’t guarantee to maintain the order of its elements in any case. The order can change through time, and they most definitely won’t be printed back in the order of insertion:

John=21
Mark=31
Maria=34
Sydney=24

If you re-run this program, it’ll keep this order, since HashMaps order their elements into bins, based on the hash value of the keys. When printing values from a HashMap, its contents are printed sequentially, so the results will stay the same if we re-run the program multiple times.

Java Map Interface Example | Map Interface in Java

Java Map is an object that is designed to store associations between keys and their corresponding values – or key/value pairs. Both the key and value are objects. Essentially, a key has to be unique, whereas values may not be so. An important thing to note is that maps don’t implement the Iterable  interface and therefore, one can not cycle through a map using a for-each style for loop.

In Java, one cannot obtain an iterator to a map. However, one can obtain a collection-view of a map that does allow the use of either the for loop or an iterator.

Java Map Interface

A map contains values based on the key, i.e., key and value pair.

Each key and value pair is known as the entry. The Map contains unique keys. The Map is useful if you have to search, update, or delete elements based on the key.

Java Map Interface Tutorial

A Map doesn’t allow duplicate keys, but you can have duplicate values.  HashMap and LinkedHashMap allow the null keys and values, but the  TreeMap doesn’t allow any null key or value.
