Arraylist Grouping

ArrayList<String> superList = new ArrayList<String>();

ArrayList<String> subList = new ArrayList<String>();

superList.add("sa1");superList.add("sa1");
superList.add("sa2");superList.add("sa4");superList.add("sa3");

subList.add("A");subList.add("A");subList.add("A");subList.add("B");
subList.add("B");

the output sud contain a hashmap where key is A and value is a arraylist
like
A = {sa1,sa2},
B = {sa4,sa3}

Here key is from sublist and value is from corresponding superlist.

ArrayList<String> superList = new ArrayList<String>();
 
ArrayList<String> subList = new ArrayList<String>();
 
superList.add("sa1");superList.add("sa1");
superList.add("sa2");superList.add("sa4");superList.add("sa3");
 
subList.add("A");subList.add("A");subList.add("A");subList.add("B");
subList.add("B");
 
the output sud contain a hashmap where key is A and value is a arraylist
like
A = {sa1,sa2}
B = {sa4,sa3}

hi a b how r u doing...
It has to ..null will be there if no value...the value will come from database..
so i think the size is equal.but key is A(which is from subList) Value will be corresponding
values from superList{sa1,sa2,sa3}....we ll not put null if its there in wen forming the output
A={sa1,sa2}

Ex:
public getData(List1,List2)
{
some opearion
}
