Program: How to delete user defined objects as a key from HashMap?


Description:

Below example shows how to delete user defined objects as a key from HashMap. You can achieve this by implementing equals and hashcode methods at the user defined objects.


Code:
package com.java2novice.hashmap;

import java.util.HashMap;
import java.util.Set;

public class MyDeleteKeyObject {

	public static void main(String a[]){
		
		HashMap<Price, String> hm = new HashMap<Price, String>();
		hm.put(new Price("Banana", 20), "Banana");
		hm.put(new Price("Apple", 40), "Apple");
		hm.put(new Price("Orange", 30), "Orange");
		printMap(hm);
		Price key = new Price("Banana", 20);
		System.out.println("Deleting key...");
		hm.remove(key);
		System.out.println("After deleting key:");
		printMap(hm);
	}
	
	public static void printMap(HashMap<Price, String> map){
		
		Set<Price> keys = map.keySet();
		for(Price p:keys){
			System.out.println(p+"==>"+map.get(p));
		}
	}
}

class Price{
	
	private String item;
	private int price;
	
	public Price(String itm, int pr){
		this.item = itm;
		this.price = pr;
	}
	
	public int hashCode(){
		System.out.println("In hashcode");
		int hashcode = 0;
		hashcode = price*20;
		hashcode += item.hashCode();
		return hashcode;
	}
	
	public boolean equals(Object obj){
		System.out.println("In equals");
		if (obj instanceof Price) {
			Price pp = (Price) obj;
			return (pp.item.equals(this.item) && pp.price == this.price);
		} else {
			return false;
		}
	}
	
	public String getItem() {
		return item;
	}
	public void setItem(String item) {
		this.item = item;
	}
	public int getPrice() {
		return price;
	}
	public void setPrice(int price) {
		this.price = price;
	}
	
	public String toString(){
		return "item: "+item+"  price: "+price;
	}
}

Output:
item: Apple  price: 40==>Apple
item: Orange  price: 30==>Orange
item: Banana  price: 20==>Banana
Deleting key...
After deleting key:
item: Apple  price: 40==>Apple
item: Orange  price: 30==>Orange

Can we override static method?
We cannot override static methods. Static methods are belogs to class, not belongs to object. Inheritance will not be applicable for class members
