java.util.TreeMap.putAll() Method



The putAll(Map<? extends K,? extends V> map) method is used to copy all of the mappings from the specified map to this map. These mappings replace any mappings that this map had for any of the keys currently in the specified map.


Following is the declaration for java.util.TreeMap.putAll() method.

public void putAll(Map<? extends K,? extends V> map)


  • map--This is the mappings to be stored in this map.

Return Value



  • ClassCastException--This exception is thrown if the class of a key or value in the specified map prevents it from being stored in this map.

  • NullPointerException--This exception is thrown if the specified map is null or the specified map contains a null key and this map does not permit null keys.


The following example shows the usage of java.util.TreeMap.putAll()

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.util.*;

public class TreeMapDemo {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      // creating tree maps 
      TreeMap<Integer, String> treemap = new TreeMap<Integer, String>();
      TreeMap<Integer, String> treemap_putall = 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");
      treemap_putall.put(1, "111"); 
      treemap_putall.put(2, "222");
      treemap_putall.put(7, "777");      
      System.out.println("Value before modification: "+ treemap);
      // Putting 2nd map in 1st map
      System.out.println("Value after modification: "+ treemap);

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

Value before modification: {1=one, 2=two, 3=three, 5=five, 6=six}
Value after modification: {1=111, 2=222, 3=three, 5=five, 6=six, 7=777}
