Get lowest key stored in Java TreeMap

Java 8Object Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

Use the firstKey() method to get the lowest key stored in TreeMap.

Let us first set the TreeMap and add some elements to it −

TreeMap<Integer,String> m = new TreeMap<Integer,String>();
m.put(1,"PHP");
m.put(2,"jQuery");
m.put(3,"JavaScript");
m.put(4,"Ruby");
m.put(5,"Java");
m.put(6,"AngularJS");
m.put(7,"ExpressJS");

Now get the lowest key −

m.firstKey()

The following is an example to get the lowest key in TreeMap −

Example

 Live Demo

import java.util.*;
public class Demo {
   public static void main(String args[]) {
      TreeMap<Integer,String> m = new TreeMap<Integer,String>();
      m.put(1,"PHP");
      m.put(2,"jQuery");
      m.put(3,"JavaScript");
      m.put(4,"Ruby");
      m.put(5,"Java");
      m.put(6,"AngularJS");
      m.put(7,"ExpressJS");
      System.out.println("TreeMap Elements...\n"+m);
      System.out.println("Lowest key in TreeMap: " + m.firstKey());
   }
}

Output

TreeMap Elements...
{1=PHP, 2=jQuery, 3=JavaScript, 4=Ruby, 5=Java, 6=AngularJS, 7=ExpressJS}
Lowest key in TreeMap: 1
