In this Tutorial we are going to see how to implement Map with arraylist. This is an example of a Map. We must import some of the packages as below.

import java.util.AbstractMap;
import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.HashSet;
import java.util.Iterator;
import java.util.List;
import java.util.Set;

public class MapExample extends AbstractMap
{

private List listk = new ArrayList();
private List listv = new ArrayList();

public Object put(Object key, Object value) 
{
Object result = get(key);
if (!listk.contains(key))
{
listk.add(key);
listv.add(value);
}
else
listv.set(listk.indexOf(key), value);
return result;
}

public Object get(Object key)
{
if (!listk.contains(key))
return null;
return listv.get(listk.indexOf(key));
}

public Set entrySet()
{
Set entries = new HashSet();
Iterator ki = listk.iterator();
Iterator vi = listv.iterator();
while (ki.hasNext())
entries.add(new Map11(ki.next(), vi.next()));
return entries;
}

public String toString()
{
StringBuffer s = new StringBuffer("{");
Iterator ki = listk.iterator(), vi = listv.iterator();
while (ki.hasNext())
{
s.append(ki.next() + "=" + vi.next());
if (ki.hasNext())
s.append(", ");
}
s.append("}");
return s.toString();
}

public static void main(String[] args)
{
MapExample m = new MapExample();
m.put("Netscape", "Mountain View, CA");
m.put("Adobe", "Mountain View, CA");
m.put("Sun", "Mountain View, CA");
m.put("Microsoft", "Redmond, WA");
m.put("IBM", "White Plains, NY");
m.put("O'Reilly", "Sebastopol, CA");
m.put("Learning Tree", "Los Angeles, CA");
System.out.println(m);

}



class Map11 implements Entry, Comparable
{
Object key, value;
Map11(Object k, Object v)
{
key = k;
value = v;
}
public Object getKey()
{
return key;
}
public Object getValue()
{
return value;
}
public Object setValue(Object v)
{
Object result = value;
value = v;
return result;
}
public boolean equals(Object o) {
return key.equals(((Map11)o).key);
}
public int compareTo(Object rv) {
return ((Comparable)key).compareTo(
((Map11)rv).key);
}
}
