Java Program to Get key from HashMap using the value



In this article, we will understand how to get key from HashMap using the value. Java HashMap is a hash table based implementation of Java's Map interface. It is a collection of key-value pairs.

Below is a demonstration of the same −

Suppose our input is

Input HashMap: {Java=8, Scala=5, Python=15}
Key: 8

The desired output would be

The value of Key: 8 is Java

Algorithm

Step 1 - START
Step 2 - Declare namely
Step 3 - Define the values.
Step 4 - Create a HashMap of integer and string values and initialize elements in it using the ‘put’ method.
Step 5 - Define a key value.
Step 6 - Iterate over the elements of HashMap, and check if the key previously defined is present in the HashMap.
Step 7 - If found, break away from the loop.
Step 8 - Display the result
Step 9 - Stop

Example 1

Here, we bind all the operations together under the ‘main’ function.

import java.util.HashMap;
import java.util.Map.Entry;
public class Demo {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      System.out.println("The required packages have been imported");
      HashMap<String, Integer> input_map = new HashMap<>();
      input_map.put("Scala", 5);
      input_map.put("Java", 8);
      input_map.put("Python", 15);
      System.out.println("The HashMap is defined as: " + input_map);
      Integer Key = 8;
      for(Entry<String, Integer> entry: input_map.entrySet()) {
         if(entry.getValue() == Key) {
            System.out.println("\nThe value of Key: " + Key + " is " + entry.getKey());
            break;
         }
      }
   }
}

Output

The required packages have been imported
The HashMap is defined as: {Java=8, Scala=5, Python=15}

The value of Key: 8 is Java

Example 2

Here, we encapsulate the operations into functions exhibiting object oriented programming.

import java.util.HashMap;
import java.util.Map.Entry;
public class Demo {
   static void get_value(HashMap<String, Integer> input_map,Integer Key){
      for(Entry<String, Integer> entry: input_map.entrySet()) {
         if(entry.getValue() == Key) {
            System.out.println("\nThe value of Key: " + Key + " is " + entry.getKey());
            break;
         }
      }
   }
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      System.out.println("The required packages have been imported");
      HashMap<String, Integer> input_map = new HashMap<>();
      input_map.put("Scala", 5);
      input_map.put("Java", 8);
      input_map.put("Python", 15);
      System.out.println("The HashMap is defined as: " + input_map);
      Integer Key = 8;
      get_value(input_map, Key);
   }
}

Output

The required packages have been imported
The HashMap is defined as: {Java=8, Scala=5, Python=15}

The value of Key: 8 is Java
