Java: Test if a map contains a mapping for the specified value

Java Collection, HashMap Exercises: Exercise-8 with Solution

Write a Java program to test if a map contains a mapping for the specified value.

Sample Solution:-

Java Code:

import java.util.*;  
public class Example8 {  
   public static void main(String args[]) {
  HashMap < Integer, String > hash_map = new HashMap < Integer, String > ();
  hash_map.put(1, "Red");
  hash_map.put(2, "Green");
  hash_map.put(3, "Black");
  hash_map.put(4, "White");
  hash_map.put(5, "Blue");
  // print the map
  System.out.println("The Original map: " + hash_map);
  System.out.println("1. Is value \'Green\' exists?");
  if (hash_map.containsValue("Green")) {
   //value exists
   System.out.println("Yes! ");
  } else {
   //value does not exists

  System.out.println("\n2. Is value \'orange\' exists?");
  if (hash_map.containsValue("orange")) {
   System.out.println("yes! - " );
  } else {

Sample Output:

The Original map: {1=Red, 2=Green, 3=Black, 4=White, 5=Blue}           
1. Is value 'Green' exists?                                            
2. Is value 'orange' exists?

Java: Tips of the Day

The difference between the Runnable and Callable interfaces in Java

The Callable interface is similar to Runnable, in that both are designed for classes whose instances are potentially executed by another thread. A Runnable, however, does not return a result and cannot throw a checked exception.
