Java Collection, TreeMap Exercises: Get a key-value mapping associated with the least key greater than or equal to the given key

Java Collection, TreeMap Exercises: Exercise-25 with Solution

Write a Java program to get a key-value mapping associated with the least key greater than or equal to the given key. Return null if there is no such key.

Sample Solution:-

Java Code:

import java.util.*;
import java.util.Map.Entry;  
public class Example25 {  
           public static void main(String args[]) {
  // Declare tree maps
  TreeMap < Integer, String > tree_map = new TreeMap < Integer, String > ();
  // Put elements to the map 
  tree_map.put(10, "Red");
  tree_map.put(20, "Green");
  tree_map.put(30, "Black");
  tree_map.put(40, "White");
  tree_map.put(50, "Pink");
  System.out.println("Orginal TreeMap content: " + tree_map);
  System.out.println("Keys greater than or equal to 20: " + tree_map.ceilingEntry(20));
  System.out.println("Keys greater than or equal to 40: " + tree_map.ceilingEntry(40));
  System.out.println("Keys greater than or equal to 50: " + tree_map.ceilingEntry(50));
 }
}

Sample Output:

Orginal TreeMap content: {10=Red, 20=Green, 30=Black, 40=White, 50=Pink
}                                                                      
Keys greater than or equal to 20: 20=Green                             
Keys greater than or equal to 40: 40=White                             
Keys greater than or equal to 50: 50=Pink

Java: Tips of the Day

Choice between Float and Double:

Data type Bytes used Significant figures (decimal)
Float 4 7
Double 8 15

Double is often preferred over float in software where precision is important because of the following reasons:
Most processors take nearly the same amount of processing time to perform operations on Float and Double. Double offers far more precision in the same amount of computation time.
