The singletonMap() method of java.util.Collections class is used to return an immutable map, mapping only the specified key to the specified value. The returned map is serializable.

Syntax: 

public static  Map singletonMap(K key, V value)

Parameters: This method takes the following parameters as a argument: 

  • key – the sole key to be stored in the returned map.
  • value – the value to which the returned map maps key.

Return Value: This method returns an immutable map containing only the specified key-value mapping.

Below are the examples to illustrate the singletonMap() method

Example 1:  

Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// singletonMap() method
// for <String, String> Value
 
import java.util.*;
 
public class GFG1 {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
        throws Exception
    {
 
        try {
 
            // create singleton map
            // using singletonMap() method
            Map<String, String>
                map = Collections
                          .singletonMap("key", "Value");
 
            // printing the singletonMap
            System.out.println("Singleton map is: "
                               + map);
        }
 
        catch (IllegalArgumentException e) {
            System.out.println("Exception thrown : " + e);
        }
    }
}

Output: 

Singleton map is: {key=Value}

 

Example 2:

Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// singletonMap() method
// for <Integer, Boolean> Value
 
import java.util.*;
 
public class GFG1 {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
        throws Exception
    {
 
        try {
 
            // create singleton map
            // using singletonMap() method
            Map<Integer, Boolean>
                map = Collections
                          .singletonMap(100, true);
 
            // printing the singletonMap
            System.out.println("Singleton map is: "
                               + map);
        }
 
        catch (IllegalArgumentException e) {
            System.out.println("Exception thrown : " + e);
        }
    }
}

Output: 

Singleton map is: {100=true}
