Program: How to iterate through Hashtable?


Description:

Below example shows how to read elements from Hashtable. You can iterate through each and every element by getting all keys as set object. Using each element as a key from set, you can values from Hashtable.


Code:
package com.java2novice.hashtable;

import java.util.Hashtable;
import java.util.Set;

public class MyHashtableRead {

	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);
		Set<String> keys = hm.keySet();
		for(String key: keys){
			System.out.println("Value of "+key+" is: "+hm.get(key));
		}
	}
}

Output:
{third=THIRD INSERTED, second=SECOND INSERTED, first=FIRST INSERTED}
Value of third is: THIRD INSERTED
Value of second is: SECOND INSERTED
Value of first is: FIRST INSERTED

Difference between Enumeration and Iterator
The functionality of Enumeration and the Iterator are same. You can get remove() from Iterator to remove an element, while while Enumeration does not have remove() method. Using Enumeration you can only traverse and fetch the objects, where as using Iterator we can also add and remove the objects. So Iterator can be useful if you want to manipulate the list and Enumeration is for read-only access.
Famous Quotations
The greatest obstacle to discovery is not ignorance; it is the illusion of knowledge.
