There is no such method, of the Collections class, call synchronizedMap(), that takes two parameters. There is one that takes a map, and it basically returns a wrapper class. It will return a Map class, whose methods are synchronized, and whose implementation is to just call the map that was passed in.

This forum is for threading and synchronization (which is related to threading) questions only. Please post this question in a more appropriate forum.
