HashMap and Hashtable: please note the spellling.

Look in the API documentation for HashMap and Hashtable. The first line under HashMap tells the main differences, about synchronisation and about nulls.

A Map is completely different from an ArrayList. Go through the Collections part of the Java Tutorial and see the difference between a Map and a List.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
