The java.util.IdentityHashMap.clear() method in Java is used to clear and remove all of the elements or mappings from a specified map. Syntax:
Identity_HashMap.clear()
Parameters: The method does not accept any parameters. Return Value: The method does not return any value. Below programs are used to illustrate the working of java.util.IdentityHashMap.clear() Method: Program 1: Mapping String Values to Integer Keys.
// Java code to illustrate the clear() method
import java.util.*;
  
public class Identity_Hash_Map_Demo {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Creating an empty IdentityHashMap
        IdentityHashMap<Integer, String> identity_hash = new IdentityHashMap<Integer, String>();
  
        // Mapping string values to int keys
        identity_hash.put(10, "Geeks");
        identity_hash.put(15, "4");
        identity_hash.put(20, "Geeks");
        identity_hash.put(25, "Welcomes");
        identity_hash.put(30, "You");
  
        // Displaying the IdentityHashMap
        System.out.println("Initial Mappings are: "
                           + identity_hash);
  
        // Clearing the map using clear()
        identity_hash.clear();
  
        // Displaying the final IdentityHashMap
        System.out.println("Final Map: "
                           + identity_hash);
    }
}

                    
Output:
Initial Mappings are: {10=Geeks, 30=You, 20=Geeks, 25=Welcomes, 15=4}
Final Map: {}
Program 2: Mapping Integer Values to String Keys.
// Java code to illustrate the clear() method
import java.util.*;
  
public class Identity_Hash_Map_Demo {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Creating an empty IdentityHashMap
        Map<String, Integer> identity_hash = new IdentityHashMap<String, Integer>();
  
        // Mapping int values to string keys
        identity_hash.put("Geeks", 10);
        identity_hash.put("4", 15);
        identity_hash.put("Geeks", 20);
        identity_hash.put("Welcomes", 25);
        identity_hash.put("You", 30);
  
        // Displaying the IdentityHashMap
        System.out.println("Initial Mappings are: " + identity_hash);
  
        // Clearing the map using clear()
        identity_hash.clear();
  
        // Displaying the final IdentityHashMap
        System.out.println("Final Map: "
                           + identity_hash);
    }
}

                    
Output:
Initial Mappings are: {Geeks=20, Welcomes=25, You=30, 4=15}
Final Map: {}
Note: The same operation can be performed with any type of Mapping with variation and combination of different data types.
