Hashtable API:
The Hashtable class implements a hashtable, which maps keys to values. Any non-null object can be used as a key or as a value.

WeakHashMap API:
Both null values and the null key are supported. This class has performance characteristics similar to those of the HashMap class, and has the same efficiency parameters of initial capacity and load factor.
