public class TreeMapDemo {
   public static void main(String[] args) {

      // creating tree map 
      TreeMap<Integer, String> treemap = new TreeMap<Integer, String>();

      // populating tree map
      treemap.put(2, "two");
      treemap.put(1, "one");
      treemap.put(3, "three");
      treemap.put(6, "six");
      treemap.put(5, "five");   

      // polling first entry
      System.out.println("Value before poll: "+ treemap);            
      System.out.println("Value returned: "+ treemap.pollFirstEntry());      
      System.out.println("Value after poll: "+ treemap);
   }     
}

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result.

Value before poll: {1=one, 2=two, 3=three, 5=five, 6=six}
Value returned: 1=one
