objects is right.
but one note here..you may need to synchronize hashmap externally if your application need threadsafety. (of course, in that case u wouldnt have dumped hashtable in first place...but some ppl dont use hashtable at all ..as they believe its not "true" collection..
anyways choice is yours)
