The isEmpty() method of Dictionary Class checks whether this dictionary has any key-value mappings or not. The function returns TRUE only if there is no entry in this dictionary.

Syntax:

public abstract boolean isEmpty()

Return Value: The function returns TRUE if the dictionary is empty and FALSE otherwise.

Exception: The function throws no exception.

        Dictionary<Integer, String>
            d = new Hashtable<Integer, String>();
  
        // Insert elements in the hashtable
        d.put(1, "Geeks");
        d.put(2, "for");
        d.put(3, "Geeks");
  
        // Print the Dictionary
        System.out.println("\nDictionary: " + d);
  
        // check if this dictionary is empty
        // using isEmpty() method
        if (d.isEmpty()) {
            System.out.println("Dictionary "
                               + "is empty");
        }
        else
            System.out.println("Dictionary "
                               + "is not empty");
