What is the best data structure to use to retrieve data from a map of data
? There are about 40000 objects in a Map with index of Integer values.
I heard that even though
is sorted, it has nothing to do with data
any idea please.

There is ofcourse not one data structure that is better than the other one for all purposes. It depends on what you are doing. If you want the data to be sorted on keys, use
. Otherwise use
is faster than
for get and put operations. From the JavaDoc of
"This implementation provides
for the basic operations (get and put), assuming the hash function disperses the elements properly among the buckets."
From the JavaDoc of
"This implementation provides guaranteed
cost for the containsKey, get, put and remove operations."
