    public String getLastname() {
        return lastname;

public String toString() {

public int hashCode() {
return this.toString().hashCode();
public boolean equals(Object emp) {
if ( emp == null ) return false;
if ( this.getClass() != emp.getClass() ) return false;
String name = ((Employee)emp).toString();

public static void main(String[]args){
    HashMap<Integer,Employee> map = new HashMap<Integer,Employee>();
    map.put(1,new Employee("Annie","Smith"));
