HashMap Vs Hash table

Can anyone tell me the difference between hash map and hash table?

I know that hash table does not allow any null values whereas Hash map does.
Any other differences?

The main diffrence btw HashTable and HashMap is that HashTable methods are Threads-Safe(meaning they are synchronised methods) while HashMap is not ThreadSafe..So basically HashTable is used when more than one thread will be accessing it..

HashMap can store one null key and multiple null values but HashTable can not have any null.
HashTable is synchronized but HashMap is NOT.
