NavigableMap – OCPJP 6

NavigableMap is similar to NavigableSet. In NavigableMap we will use key value pairs to reterive the value. see the following code:

navigableMap.put(1,"tiger");

Look into the following code snippet:

package javabeat.net;
import java.util.NavigableMap;
import java.util.concurrent.ConcurrentSkipListMap;

public class NavigableMapExample1 {
    public static void main(String args[]){
        NavigableMap<Integer,String> navigableMap = new ConcurrentSkipListMap<Integer,String>();
        navigableMap.put(1,"tiger");
        navigableMap.put(2,"lion");
        navigableMap.put(3,"leopard");
        System.out.println(navigableMap.lowerEntry(2));
        System.out.println(navigableMap.higherEntry(2));
    }
}

In tha bove code NavigableMap API is used for reteriving the less than and greater than value based on key. The output would be like this:

1=tiger
3=leopard

2) What will be the output of the following program?

package navmap;
import java.util.HashMap;
import java.util.NavigableMap;
import java.util.TreeMap;
public class Ques01 {
	public static void main(String[] args) {
		NavigableMap<String, String> colors = new HashMap<String, String>();
		colors.put("RED", "Red");
		colors.put("BLUE", "Blue");
		System.out.println(colors.get("BLUE"));
	}
}
  1. The program will output ‘null’.
  2. The program will return ‘Blue’.
  3. The program won’t compile because of compilation errors.
  4. The program will throw a run-time exception.

2) c.

The program won’t compile since the class HashMap doesn’t implement the NavigableMap interface.
