NavigableMap floorKey() method in Java

The floorKey() method of NavigableMap interface in Java is used to return the greatest key less than or equal to the given key, or null if there is no such key.

Syntax:

K floorKey(K key)

Where, K is the type of key maintained by this map.



Parameters: This function accepts a single parameter Key which refers to the type of key maintained by this map container.

Return Value: It returns the greatest key less than or equal to the given key, or null if there is no such key.

Below programs illustrate the floorKey() method in Java:

Program 1: When the key is integer.

        System.out.println("The mapping with greatest"
                           + " key is : " + nmmp.floorKey(7));
    }
}
