Both provide key-value access to data. The Hashtable is one of the original collection classes in Java. HashMap is part of the new Collections Framework, added with Java 2, v1.2. The key difference between the two is that access to the  Hashtable is synchronized on the table while access to the
HashMap isn't. You can add it, but it isn't there by  default.

Another difference is that iterator in the HashMap is fail-safe while the enumerator for the Hashtable isn't. If you change the map while iterating, you'll know.

And, a third difference is that HashMap permits null values in it, while Hashtable doesn't.
