Program: How to compare two sets and retain elements which are same on both sets?


Description:

Below example shows how to compare two sets, and retain the values which are common on both set objects. By calling retainAll() method you can do this operation.


Code:
package com.java2novice.hashset;

import java.util.HashSet;

public class MyHashSetRetain {

	public static void main(String a[]){
		HashSet<String> hs = new HashSet<String>();
		//add elements to HashSet
		hs.add("first");
		hs.add("second");
		hs.add("third");
		hs.add("apple");
		hs.add("rat");
		System.out.println(hs);
		HashSet<String> subSet = new HashSet<String>();
		subSet.add("rat");
		subSet.add("second");
		subSet.add("first");
		hs.retainAll(subSet);
		System.out.println("HashSet content:");
		System.out.println(hs);
	}
}

Output:
[second, apple, rat, third, first]
HashSet content:
[second, rat, first]

Domain Naming Service(DNS)
It is very difficult to remember a set of numbers (IP address) to connect to the Internet. The Domain Naming Service(DNS) is used to overcome this problem. It maps one particular IP address to a string of characters. For example, www.java2novice.com implies com is the domain name reserved for US commercial sites, java2novice is the name of the company and www is the name of the specific computer, which is java2novice's server.
