The Java Path interface was added to Java NIO in Java 7. hashCode() method of java.nio.file.Path used to return a hash code for this path after computing hashcode. The hashcode is always the same if the object doesn’t change. Hashcode is a unique code generated by the JVM at time of object creation. It can be used to perform some operation on hashing related algorithm like a hashtable, hashmap etc. An object can also be searched with its unique code (hashcode). Syntax:
int hashCode()
Parameters: This method accepts nothing. Return value: This method returns the hash-code value for this path. Below programs illustrate hashCode() method: Program 1:
// Java program to demonstrate
// java.nio.file.Path.hashCode() method
  
import java.io.IOException;
import java.nio.file.Path;
import java.nio.file.Paths;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
        throws IOException
    {
  
        // create object of Path
        Path path
            = Paths.get("D:/workspace/AmanCV.docx");
  
        // call hashCode() to get hashCode
        int hashCode = path.hashCode();
  
        // print hashCode
        System.out.println("Hash Code: "
                           + hashCode);
    }
}

                    
Output:
Hash Code: 1600751599
Program 2:
// Java program to demonstrate
// java.nio.file.Path.hashCode() method
  
import java.io.IOException;
import java.nio.file.Path;
import java.nio.file.Paths;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
        throws IOException
    {
  
        // create object of Path
        Path path = Paths.get("D:/Resume.pdf");
  
        // call hashCode() to get hashCode
        int hashCode = path.hashCode();
  
        // print hashCode
        System.out.println("Hash Code: "
                           + hashCode);
    }
}

                    
Output:
Hash Code: -996777206
