SortedMap entrySet() method in Java with Examples

The entrySet() method of SortedMap interface in Java is used to create a set out of the same elements contained in the map. It basically returns a set view of the map or creates a new set and store the map elements into them.

Syntax:

SortedMap.entrySet()

Parameters: The method does not take any parameter.



Return Value: The method returns a set having same elements as the map.

Below programs are used to illustrate the working of above method:

Program 1: Using HashMap.

        SortedMap<String, Integer>
            sotree_map = new TreeMap<String,
                                     Integer>();
  
        // Mapping int values to string keys
        sotree_map.put("Geeks", 10);
        sotree_map.put("4", 15);
        sotree_map.put("Geeks", 20);
        sotree_map.put("Welcomes", 25);
        sotree_map.put("You", 30);
  
        // Displaying the TreeMap
        System.out.println("Initial Mappings are: "
                           + sotree_map);
  
        // Using entrySet() to get the set view
        System.out.println("The set is: "
                           + sotree_map.entrySet());
    }

    }
}

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