The java.util.WeakHashMap.entrySet() method 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 weak hash map or we can create a new set and store the map elements into them.

Syntax:

weak_hash_map.entrySet()

Parameters: The method does not take any parameter.

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

Below programs illustrate the java.util.WeakHashMap.entrySet() Method:
Program 1: Mapping String Values to Integer Keys.






// Java code to illustrate the entrySet() 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);
  
        // Using entrySet() to get the set view
        System.out.println("The set is: " + weak_hash.entrySet());
    }
}
Output:
Initial Mappings are: {30=You, 15=4, 10=Geeks, 25=Welcomes, 20=Geeks}
The set is: [30=You, 15=4, 10=Geeks, 25=Welcomes, 20=Geeks]

Program 2: Mapping Integer Values to String Keys.




// Java code to illustrate the entrySet() 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);
  
        // Using entrySet() to get the set view
        System.out.println("The set is: " + weak_hash.entrySet());
    }
}
Output:
Initial Mappings are: {Welcomes=25, 4=15, You=30, Geeks=20}
The set is: [Welcomes=25, 4=15, You=30, Geeks=20]

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