AbstractMap entrySet() Method in Java with Examples
  • Last Updated : 26 Oct, 2018

The AbstractMap.entrySet() method in Java is used to create a set out of the same elements contained in the map. It basically returns a set view of the abstract map or we can create a new set and store the map elements into them.

Syntax:

AbstractMap.entrySet()

Parameters: The method does not take any parameter.

Return Value: The method returns a set having same elements as the abstract map.

Below programs are used to illustrate the working of java.util.AbstractMap.entrySet() Method:



Program 1: Mapping String Values to Integer Keys.




// Java code to illustrate the entrySet() method
  
import java.util.*;
  
public class Abstract_Map_Demo {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Creating an empty AbstractMap
        AbstractMap<Integer, String>
            abs_map = new HashMap<Integer, String>();
  
        // Mapping string values to int keys
        abs_map.put(10, "Geeks");
        abs_map.put(15, "4");
        abs_map.put(20, "Geeks");
        abs_map.put(25, "Welcomes");
        abs_map.put(30, "You");
  
        // Displaying the AbstractMap
        System.out.println("Initial Mappings are: "
                           + abs_map);
  
        // Using entrySet() to get the set view
        System.out.println("The set is: "
                           + abs_map.entrySet());
    }
}
Output:
Initial Mappings are: {20=Geeks, 25=Welcomes, 10=Geeks, 30=You, 15=4}
The set is: [20=Geeks, 25=Welcomes, 10=Geeks, 30=You, 15=4]

Program 2: Mapping Integer Values to String Keys.




// Java code to illustrate the entrySet() method
  
import java.util.*;
  
public class Abstract_Map_Demo {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Creating an empty AbstractMap
        AbstractMap<String, Integer>
            abs_map = new HashMap<String, Integer>();
  
        // Mapping int values to string keys
        abs_map.put("Geeks", 10);
        abs_map.put("4", 15);
        abs_map.put("Geeks", 20);
        abs_map.put("Welcomes", 25);
        abs_map.put("You", 30);
  
        // Displaying the AbstractMap
        System.out.println("Initial Mappings are: "
                           + abs_map);
  
        // Using entrySet() to get the set view
        System.out.println("The set is: "
                           + abs_map.entrySet());
    }
}
Output:
Initial Mappings are: {4=15, Geeks=20, You=30, Welcomes=25}
The set is: [4=15, Geeks=20, You=30, Welcomes=25]

Note: The same operation can be performed with any type of Mappings with variation and combination of different data types.
