hello experts,
I have the followng code and i am looking of additional code on ho I will remove the duplicate elements of the hashMap and the how to print it.
Map<Integer,Integer> myArr=new HashMap<Integer, Integer>();
		
		myArr.put(2,1);
		myArr.put(2,1);
		myArr.put(2,2);
		myArr.put(2,2);
		myArr.put(3,1);
		myArr.put(3,1);
		myArr.put(4,1);
		myArr.put(4,1);

So what you mean by duplicate elements 2,2 and 2,2  or
also 2,1 and 2,2 ?

You don't want to have duplicate keys?

I want to have duplicate keys but not both key,value duplications. So I want the output to be (2,1) (2,2)(3,1)(4,1)

So how are you going to retrive values later from your HasMap?
if I give you key 2 - you want to get back the list of 1,2,etc?

In HashMap you cannot have duplicate keys.
If you write System.out.println(myArr) after your code you will have: {2=1, 3=1, 4=1}
Probably you need a little bit different structure.
Better to say the main problem like for_yan try to ask you and some of us maybe can advise.

As uou cannot have two avlues associated with one key,
whenthere is such need I store vector or arraylist associated with the key.

In this way your HashMap will have
vector (or ArrayList) of values associated with each key
The code may be like that:


ArrayList firstNumbers;
ArrayList secondNumbers; - let's believe these are fillled with your  initial numbers

HashMap m = new HashMap();
ArrayList checkList = new ArrayList();

for(int j=0; j<firstNumbers.size(); j++){
Integer i1 = (Integer) firstNumbers(j);
Integer i2 = (Integer)secondNumbers(j);
String s = i1.toString() + "," + i2.toString();
if(checkList.contains(s))continue;

if(m.get(i1) != null){
ArrayList a1 = (ArrayList)m.get(i1);
a1.add(i2);
}
else
{
ArrayList a1 = new ArrayList();
a1.add(i2);
}
m.put(i1,i2);
}
checkList.add(s);


}

In order to print you do something like the following:

Enumeration keys = m.keys();
while(keys.hasMoreElements()){
Integer i1 = (Integer) keys.nextElement();
ArrayList a = (ArrayList)m.get(i1);
System.out.println(i1.toString());
for(int j=0; j<a.size(); j++)System.out.println("  " + ((Integer)a.get(j)).toString());
}

Maybe just m.toString() can also print something useful, but
maybe this is too complex structure to get a decent toString() from it

Isn't there a simpler way to store tuples of Integers?

It is better to have arraylist of say strings "1,2"
Or you can make your own class Tuple and
make arraylits  out of it

You probably need a Set<T> where T holds a key/value pair. Override T.equals based on the key AND the value

The purpose of hashtable or hashmap is actually to retrieve very quickly something
corresponding to a key. If you have really a lot of data - you
can store strings, like "1,2", "1,3", etc, in the arraylist and then check
each one string and slect those which have first integer on1, but it will be much slower than
if youy store it in Hasmap.
If you have afew dozen - doesnot matter.
If it comes to millions - this matters
for dozens - storing strings with seprator , say comma, would be the fastetst

use the following for storing your pairs

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/521171/a-java-collection-of-value-pairs-tuples

you'd then use

Set<Pair<Integer, Integer>>
