Program: How to search a value in HashMap?


Below example shows how to find whether specified value exists or not. By using containsValue() method you can find out the value existance.

package com.java2novice.hashmap;

import java.util.HashMap;

public class MyHashMapValueSearch {
        public static void main(String a[]){
                HashMap<String, String> hm = new HashMap<String, String>();
                //add key-value pair to hashmap
                hm.put("first", "FIRST INSERTED");
                hm.put("second", "SECOND INSERTED");
                hm.put("third","THIRD INSERTED");
                if(hm.containsValue("SECOND INSERTED")){
                        System.out.println("The hashmap contains value SECOND INSERTED");
                } else {
                        System.out.println("The hashmap does not contains value SECOND INSERTED");
                        System.out.println("The hashmap contains value first");
                } else {
                        System.out.println("The hashmap does not contains value first");

The hashmap contains value SECOND INSERTED
The hashmap does not contains value first

What is fail-fast in java?
A fail-fast system is nothing but immediately report any failure that is likely to lead to failure. When a problem occurs, a fail-fast system fails immediately. In Java, we can find this behavior with iterators. Incase, you have called iterator on a collection object, and another thread tries to modify the collection object, then concurrent modification exception will be thrown. This is called fail-fast.
