The following is an example to fetch the key from a KeyValue tuple in Java:


import org.javatuples.KeyValue;
public class Demo {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      KeyValue<Integer, String> kValue = KeyValue.with(2, "Rank");
      System.out.println("Key-Value in the KeyValue Tuple = "+kValue);
      System.out.println("Key = "+kValue.getKey());
