how to remove all elements from hashtable in java?


Hashtable extends Dictionary class and implements Map interface. It contains elements in key-value pair. It not allowed duplicate key. It is synchronized. It can’t contain null key or value. It uses hashcode() method for finding the position of the elements.

We can use clear() method to remove all elements from hashtable in java.


package com.codesjava;
import java.util.Hashtable;
public class Test {
  public static void main(String args[]){
	//Create Hashtable object.
	Hashtable<String, String> hashtable = new Hashtable<String, String>();
	//Add objects to the Hashtable.
	hashtable.put("1", "Jai");
	hashtable.put("2", "Mahesh");
        System.out.println("Content After clear:" + hashtable);


{3=Vivek, 2=Mahesh, 1=Jai}
Content After clear:{}
