What is the Map interface?

Hi,

Here is the answer.

The java.util.Map interface represents a mapping between a key and a value. The Map interface is not a subtype of the Collection interface. Therefore it behaves a bit different from the rest of the collection types. the interface starts of it?s own interface hierarchy, for maintaining key-value associations.

The interface describes a mapping from keys to values, without duplicate keys, by definition. The Map interface provides three collection views, which allow a map's contents to be viewed as a set of keys, collection of values, or set of key-value mappings. The order of a map is defined as the order in which the iterators on the map's collection views return their elements.

Thanks.

The Map interface maps unique keys to values. A key is an object that you use to retrieve a value at a later date.

Given a key and a value, you can store the value in a Map object. After the value is stored, you can retrieve it by using its key.

Several methods throw a NoSuchElementException when no items exist in the invoking map.

A ClassCastException is thrown when an object is incompatible with the elements in a map.

A ClassCastException is thrown when an object is incompatible with the elements in a map.

A NullPointerException is thrown if an attempt is made to use a null object and null is not allowed in the map.

An UnsupportedOperationException is thrown when an attempt is made to change an unmodifiable map
