The getCollationKey() method of java.text.RuleBasedCollator class is used to get the series of bit converted from string passed into it.
Syntax: 
 

public CollationKey getCollationKey(String source)

Parameter: This method accepts the string object as a parameter.
Return Value: This method returns the series of bit converted from the string passed into it.
Below are the examples to illustrate the getCollationKey() method:
Example 1: 
 

Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// getCollationKey() method
 
import java.text.*;
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
 
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        try {
 
            // Creating and initializing
            // new simple rule
            String simple
                = "< a < b < c < d";
 
            // Creating and initializing
            // new RuleBasedCollator Object
            RuleBasedCollator col
                = new RuleBasedCollator(simple);
 
            // getting series of bits
            // using getCollationKey() method
            CollationKey key
                = col.getCollationKey("Geek");
 
            // display result
            System.out.println(
                "Series of bits are :- "
                + key.getSourceString());
        }
 
        catch (ClassCastException e) {
 
            System.out.println("Exception thrown : " + e);
        }
        catch (ParseException e) {
 
            System.out.println("Exception thrown : " + e);
        }
    }
}

Output: 

Series of bits are :- Geek

 

Example 2: 
 

Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// getCollationKey() method
 
import java.text.*;
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
 
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        try {
 
            // Creating and initializing
            // new simple rule
            String simple
                = "< a < b < c < d";
 
            // Creating and initializing
            // new RuleBasedCollator Object
            RuleBasedCollator col
                = new RuleBasedCollator(simple);
 
            // getting series of bits
            // using getCollationKey() method
            CollationKey key
                = col.getCollationKey("G_f_G");
 
            // display result
            System.out.println(
                "Series of bits are :- "
                + key.getSourceString());
        }
 
        catch (ClassCastException e) {
 
            System.out.println("Exception thrown : " + e);
        }
        catch (ParseException e) {
 
            System.out.println("Exception thrown : " + e);
        }
    }
}

Output: 

Series of bits are :- G_f_G
