How to build smart key / value structure from input

I have this scenario that im trying to find the best algorithm to implement it .
Im getting as input array that each element contains key value object

Im my application I need to hold some kind of table structure in memory (fetched from db ) .
Each row contains list of values and one more column that represent the name of all the values in that raw.
For example:

pkgFree , 1,0,0
pkgPay , 1,1,1
all the numbers in this example are primary keys so when im getting the input array
I will get :
inputArr [0]=>checked,1
inputArr [1]=>suspend,0
inputArr [3]=>free,0

and according to these values I will get the service name in this case pkgFree.

My question is what is the best way to implement the in memory table ( it will contains like 300-500 raws )
And also how to perform this patch from this table when input is arriving.

You might concatenate the key parts into one String and use it as a HashMap key:

If the values are always 0 and 1, you can read them like a bitmap and convert them to ints:

Either of those sound useful?

A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
