Program: How to search a key in Hashtable?


Description:

Below example shows how to search a key from the Hashtable. The method containsKey() helps us to find whether the specified key exists or not.


Code:
package com.java2novice.hashtable;

import java.util.Hashtable;

public class MyHashtableKeySearch {

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

Output:
{third=THIRD INSERTED, second=SECOND INSERTED, first=FIRST INSERTED}
The Hashtable contains key first
The Hashtable does not contains key fifth

Knowledge Centre
String Vs StringBuffer
We know that String is immutable object. We can not change the value of a String object once it is initiated. If we try to change the value of the existing String object then it creates new object rather than changing the value of the existing object. So incase, we are going to do more modificatios on String, then use StringBuffer. StringBuffer updates the existing objects value, rather creating new object.
Famous Quotations
Before you go and criticize the younger generation, just remember who raised them.
