HashMap is a part of Scala Collection’s. It is used to store element and return a map. A HashMap is a combination of key and value pairs which are stored using a Hash Table data structure. It provides the basic implementation of Map.

Syntax:

var hashMapName = HashMap("key1"->"value1", "key2"->"value2", "key3"->"value3", ...) 

We must import scala.collection.mutable.HashMap for HashMap.

Operation performed by HashMap

Creating an HashMap:

Below is the example to create HashMap. In below code, we can see an empty HashMap is created then a HashMap is created with values.






// Scala program to create or print HashMap
import scala.collection.mutable.HashMap
  
// Creating object 
object Geeks 
  
    // Main method 
    def main(args: Array[String]) 
    
        // Creating empty HashMap
        var hashMap = new HashMap()  
          
        // Creating HashMap with values
        var hashMap2 = HashMap("C"->"Csharp", "S"->"Scala", "J"->"Java")  
          
        // Printing HashMap
        println(hashMap)  
        println(hashMap2)  
    

Output:

Map()
Map(S -> Scala, J -> Java, C -> Csharp)

 
Adding and Accessing Elements :

In the below example, A HashMap is created. add elements and access elements also performed.




// Scala program to Adding and Accessing Elements HashMap
import scala.collection.mutable.HashMap
  
// Creating object 
object Geeks 
  
    // Main method 
    def main(args: Array[String]) 
    
        // Creating HashMap
        var hashMap = HashMap("C"->"Csharp", "S"->"Scala", "J"->"Java")
          
        // Iterating elements
        hashMap.foreach 
        {  
            case (key, value) => println (key + " -> " + value)         
        }  
          
        // Accessing value by using key 
        println(hashMap("S"))  
          
        // Adding element
        var HashMap2 = hashMap + ("P"->"Perl")  
        HashMap2.foreach 
        {  
            case (key, value) => println (key + " -> " + value)  
        }  
    

Output:

S -> Scala
J -> Java
C -> Csharp
Scala
S -> Scala
P -> Perl
J -> Java
C -> Csharp

 
Removing an element from HashMap :
A HashMap is created than removing an element is performed using sign. Below is the example to removing an element from HashMap.




// Scala program to removing Element HashMap
import scala.collection.mutable.HashMap
  
// Creating object 
object Geeks 
  
    // Main method 
    def main(args: Array[String]) 
    
        // Creating HashMap
        var hashMap = HashMap("C"->"Csharp", "S"->"Scala", "J"->"Java")
          
        // Iterating elements
        hashMap.foreach 
        
            case (key, value) => println (key + " -> " + value)         
        
          
        // Removing an element
        hashMap -= "C"
          
        println("After Removing")
        hashMap.foreach 
        
            case (key, value) => println (key + " -> " + value) 
        
    

Output:

S -> Scala
J -> Java
C -> Csharp
After Removing
S -> Scala
J -> Java
