AbstractMap hashCode() Method in Java with Examples

The AbstractMap.hashCode() method in Java is used to fetch the hash code value of a particular this AbstractMap. A map consists of a number of buckets to store the key-value pair. Each bucket has a unique identity and when a key-value pair is inserted into a bucket, the key’s hashcode is matched with the identifier of the bucket, and if its a match the pair is stored successfully. This is how the hash code works.

Syntax:

AbstractMap.hashCode()

Parameters: The method does not accept any parameters.

Return Value: The method returns the hashcode value of the map.

Below programs are used to illustrate the working of AbstractMap.hashCode() Method:

public class Abstract_Map_Demo {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Creating an empty AbstractMap
        AbstractMap<Integer, String>
            abs_map = new IdentityHashMap<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);
  
        // Getting the hashcode value for the map
        System.out.println("The hashcode value of the map: "
                           + abs_map.hashCode());
    }
}

Output:

Initial Mappings are: {10=Geeks, 30=You, 20=Geeks, 25=Welcomes, 15=4}
The hashcode value of the map: 2043437408

        System.out.println("The hashcode value of the map: "
                           + abs_hash.hashCode());
    }
}

Output:

Initial Mappings are: {Geeks=20, Welcomes=25, You=30, 4=15}
The hashcode value of the map: 751311572

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