The java.util.WeakHashMap.containsKey() method is used to check whether a particular key is being mapped into the WeakHashMap or not. It takes the key element as a parameter and returns True if that element is mapped in the map.

Syntax:

Weak_Hash_Map.containsKey(key_element)

Parameters: The method takes just one parameter key_element that refers to the key whose mapping is supposed to be checked inside a map.

Return Value: The method returns boolean true if the presence of the key is detected else false .

Below programs are used to illustrate the working of java.util.WeakHashMap.containsKey() Method:
Program 1: Mapping String Values to Integer Keys.




// Java code to illustrate the containsKey() method
import java.util.*;
  
public class Weak_Hash_Map_Demo {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Creating an empty WeakHashMap
        Map<Integer, String> weak_hash = new WeakHashMap<Integer, String>();
  
        // Mapping string values to int keys
        weak_hash.put(10, "Geeks");
        weak_hash.put(15, "4");
        weak_hash.put(20, "Geeks");
        weak_hash.put(25, "Welcomes");
        weak_hash.put(30, "You");
  
        // Displaying the WeakHashMap
        System.out.println("Initial Mappings are: " + weak_hash);
  
        // Checking for the key_element '20'
        System.out.println("Is the key '20' present? "
                                  weak_hash.containsKey(20));
  
        // Checking for the key_element '5'
        System.out.println("Is the key '5' present? "
                                   weak_hash.containsKey(5));
    }
}

Output:

Initial Mappings are: {30=You, 15=4, 10=Geeks, 25=Welcomes, 20=Geeks}
Is the key '20' present? true
Is the key '5' present? false

Program 2: Mapping Integer Values to String Keys.




// Java code to illustrate the containsKey() method
import java.util.*;
  
public class Weak_Hash_Map_Demo {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Creating an empty WeakHashMap
        Map<String, Integer> weak_hash = new WeakHashMap<String, Integer>();
  
        // Mapping int values to string keys
        weak_hash.put("Geeks", 10);
        weak_hash.put("4", 15);
        weak_hash.put("Geeks", 20);
        weak_hash.put("Welcomes", 25);
        weak_hash.put("You", 30);
  
        // Displaying the WeakHashMap
        System.out.println("Initial Mappings are: " + weak_hash);
  
        // Checking for the key_element 'Welcomes'
        System.out.println("Is the key 'Welcomes' present? "
                                  weak_hash.containsKey("Welcomes"));
  
        // Checking for the key_element 'World'
        System.out.println("Is the key 'World' present? "
                                      weak_hash.containsKey("World"));
    }
}

Output:

Initial Mappings are: {Welcomes=25, 4=15, You=30, Geeks=20}
Is the key 'Welcomes' present? true
Is the key 'World' present? false

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