public class WeakHashMapDemo {
   public static void main(String[] args) { 
      Map<String, String> weakHashMap = new WeakHashMap<String, String>();
      
      // put keys and values in the Map      
      weakHashMap.put("1", "first");
      weakHashMap.put("2", "two");
      weakHashMap.put("3", "three");
      
      // print the contents  
      System.out.println("Contents in the Map");
      System.out.println(weakHashMap);
      
      // call clear() method
      System.out.println("Clear the Map");
      weakHashMap.clear();
     
      // again print the contents
      System.out.println("Contents in the Map");
      System.out.println(weakHashMap);
   }    
}
