SortedMap put() method in Java with Examples

The put() method of SortedMap interface in Java is used to associate the specified value with the specified key in this map.

Syntax:

V put(K key,
    V value)

Parameters: This method has two arguments:



  • key: which is the left argument and
  • value: which is the corresponding value of the key in the map.

Returns: This method returns previous value associated with the key if present, else return -1.

Note: The put() method in SortedMap is inherited from the Map interface in Java.

Below programs illustrate the implementation of int put() method:

import java.util.*;
  
public class GfG {
  
    // Driver code
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Initializing a SortedMap
        SortedMap<Integer, String> map
            = new TreeMap<>();
  
        map.put(1, "One");
        map.put(3, "Three");
        map.put(5, "Five");
        map.put(7, "Seven");
        map.put(9, "Ninde");
  
        System.out.println(map);
    }
}
