NavigableMap clear() Method in Java

The clear() method of NavigableMap interface in Java is used to clear and remove all of the elements or mappings from a specified Map.

Syntax:

NavigableMap.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 clear() method:

// Java code to illustrate the clear() method
import java.util.*;
  
public class NavigableMap_Demo {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Creating an empty NavigableMap
        NavigableMap<Integer, String> nav_map = new TreeMap<Integer, String>();
  
        // Mapping string values to int keys
        nav_map.put(10, "Geeks");
        nav_map.put(15, "4");
        nav_map.put(20, "Geeks");
        nav_map.put(25, "Welcomes");
        nav_map.put(30, "You");
  
        // Displaying the NavigableMap
        System.out.println("Initial Mappings are: " + nav_map);
  
        // Clearing the tree map using clear()
        nav_map.clear();
  
        // Displaying the final NavigableMap
        System.out.println("Finally the map looks like: " + nav_map);
    }
}

Output:

Initial Mappings are: {10=Geeks, 15=4, 20=Geeks, 25=Welcomes, 30=You}
Finally the map looks like: {}

    }
}

Output:

Initial Mappings are: {4=15, Geeks=20, Welcomes=25, You=30}
Finally the map looks like: {}

Note: The same operation can be performed with any type of Mapping with variation and combination of different data types.
