Below programs show the implementation of int list(PrintWriter) method.

Program 1:




// Java code to show the implementation of
// list(PrintWriter) method
  
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
  
public class GfG {
  
    // Main method
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Create a properties and add some values
        Properties properties = new Properties();
        properties.put("Pen", "10");
        properties.put("Book", "500");
        properties.put("Clothes", "400");
        properties.put("Mobile", "5000");
  
        // Print Properties details
        System.out.println("Properties: "
                           + properties.toString());
  
        PrintWriter writer = new PrintWriter(System.out);
  
        // print the list with a PrintWriter object
        properties.list(writer);
  
        // flush the stream and display
        System.out.println("listing out the Properties: ");
        writer.flush();
    }
}
Output:
Properties: {Book=500, Mobile=5000, Pen=10, Clothes=400}
listing out the Properties: 
-- listing properties --
Book=500
Pen=10
Mobile=5000
Clothes=400

Program 2:




// Java program to demonstrate
// list(PrintWriter) method.
  
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
  
public class GFG {
  
    // Main method
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Create a properties and add some values
        Properties properties = new Properties();
  
        // Inserting elements into the properties
        properties.put("Geeks", "10");
        properties.put("4", "15");
        properties.put("Geeks", "20");
        properties.put("Welcomes", "25");
        properties.put("You", "30");
  
        // Print Properties details
        System.out.println("Properties: "
                           + properties.toString());
  
        PrintWriter writer = new PrintWriter(System.out);
  
        // print the list with a PrintWriter object
        properties.list(writer);
  
        // flush the stream and display
        System.out.println("listing out the Properties: ");
        writer.flush();
    }
}
Output:
Properties: {You=30, Welcomes=25, 4=15, Geeks=20}
listing out the Properties: 
-- listing properties --
You=30
4=15
Welcomes=25
