Hash Map question ...

I have a question relating to the uniqueness of keys in HashMap. I wrote this program and apparently the HashMap seems to be accepting duplicate keys. Could some one please point out what I am doing wrong or if I am missing something?

Thanks,
Brian

Are you sure your equals method should contain "(o instanceof MyType)", not "(o instanceof MyMapKeyType)" ?
