The java.util.concurrent.ConcurrentHashMap.containsValue() method is an in-built function in Java which accepts a value and returns true if one or more keys are mapped to the specified value. This method traverses the entire hashtable. Thus it is a much slower function than containsKey() method.
Parameters: The method accepts a single parameter val_element of object type which is to be checked for whether it is mapped to any key in the map or not.
Return Value: The method returns true if the specified val_element is mapped to any key in this map and false otherwise.
Exception: The function throws NullPointerException when the specified value_element is null.
Below programs illustrate the use of java.util.concurrent.ConcurrentHashMap.containsValue() method :
Program 1: This program involves mapping Integer Values to String Keys.
100 is not mapped. 120 is mapped.
Program 2: This program involves mapping String Values to Integer Keys.
Geeks is mapped. GfG is not mapped.
