WeakHashMap values() Method in Java

  • Last Updated : 20 Jul, 2018

The java.util.WeakHashMap.values() method of HashMap class in Java is used to create a collection out of the values of the map. It basically returns a Collection view of the values in the Map.

Syntax:

Weak_Hash_Map.values()

Parameters: The method does not accept any parameters.

Return Value: The method is used to return a collection view containing all the values of the map.

Below programs are used to illustrate the working of java.util.WeakHashMap.values() Method:
Program 1:






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

Program 2:




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

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