String is and Object

In some cases you may say

String s;

Object o = s;

and you don't need to cast as String inherits form Objcet

map.keySet() is a method which returns set of keys for a given object of type Map

>>>keySet

public Set keySet()
Returns a set view of the keys contained in this map. The set is backed by the map, so changes to the map are reflected in the set, and vice-versa. If the map is modified while an iteration over the set is in progress, the results of the iteration are undefined. The set supports element removal, which removes the corresponding mapping from the map, via the Iterator.remove, Set.remove, removeAll retainAll, and clear operations. It does not support the add or addAll operations.
Returns:
a set view of the keys contained in this map.



when do we use it. To change map to set we use it?

Please elaborate

Well sometimes you need to print out all keys existing in your map
In other cases you may use this method to traverse your whole map - then
you may say

HashMap <String, String> map = new HashMap<String, String>();
// populate your map in some way
 
Set set = map.keySet();

for(String s: set){
String value = map.get(s);
System.out.println("key " + s + " value " + value);

///do something with each pair

}

No we usualyy don't use keySet() to change the map,
we'll chnge the map normally by addig new pairs, say with put(kew, Vlaue) method
