NavigableMap higherEntry() method in Java

Java 8Object Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

The higherEntry() method in NavigableMap returns a key-value mapping associated with the least key strictly greater than the given key.

The following is an example to implement higherEntry() method −


 Live Demo

import java.util.*;
public class Demo {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      NavigableMap<Integer, String> n = new TreeMap<Integer, String>();
      n.put(5, "Tom");
      n.put(9, "John");
      n.put(14, "Jamie");
      n.put(1, "Tim");
      n.put(4, "Jackie");
      n.put(15, "Kurt");
      n.put(19, "Tiger");
      n.put(24, "Jacob");
      System.out.println("NavigableMap elements...
"+n);       System.out.println("Higher Entry = "+n.higherEntry(7));    } }


The following is the output

NavigableMap elements...
{1=Tim, 4=Jackie, 5=Tom, 9=John, 14=Jamie, 15=Kurt, 19=Tiger, 24=Jacob}
Higher Entry = 9=John
