or, just to write is out:

public void addToHashTable()
    HashTable myHashTable = new HashTable();
    String key = "this is the key";
    Object value = new Object();

    myHashTable.put(key, value);

that's it :)

import java.util.*;
class Hashme {

        public static void main (String arg[]) {

                Hashtable h = new Hashtable ();


                //put new elements in a hash table

                h.put("one", new Integer(32510) );

                h.put("Two", new Integer(52510) );

                h.put("Three", new Integer(12013) );

                System.out.println("Hash table contains: " + h);


                // Check if the hash table is empty

                System.out.println("Hash table is empty? " + h.isEmpty());


                // getting value from a hash table against a key

                System.out.println("Two contains Value: " + h.get("Two"));


                //finding a value

      System.out.println("The value 32510 exists? " + h.contains (new Integer(32510)));


                //finding a key
      System.out.println("The key three exists? " + h.containsKey ("Three"));

      //removing an object against a key
            System.out.println("Removing three: " + h.remove ("Three"));

      //finding the latest status of hash table
System.out.println("Hash table now contains: " + h);

      System.out.println("Size is: " + h.size());
