AbstractMap.SimpleEntry toString() Method in Java with Examples

AbstractMap.SimpleEntry<K, V> is used to maintain a key and a value entry. The value can be changed using the setValue method. This class facilitates the process of building custom map implementations.

toString() method of AbstractMap.SimpleEntry<K, V> returns a String representation of this SimpleEntry map entry. This method returns the string representation of this map entry’s key followed by the equals character (“=”) followed by the string representation of this entry’s value.

Syntax:

public String toString()

Parameters: This method accepts nothing.

Return value: This method returns a String representation of this map entry.

Below programs illustrate toString() method:

            String value = map.toString();
  
            System.out.println(value);
        }
