You are usually better using the HashMap<K, V> class, but there is nothing wrong with the code you posted.
Also, it would be better to declare the reference as Map<
Change Hashmap to HashMap.[/edit]

It won't give you an error (since a Hashtable<String,String> still is a Hashtable), but later on you will most definitely get some warnings - either when trying to add something or when casting back to Hashtable<String,String>.
