hello sir,

I have hashtable consists of keys with their corresponding values. While entering the values in hashtable it's in ascending order. but in printing statement the hashtable comes in descending order. I used Enumeration to print the values. What's the mechanism behind that. can you explain me. Because i need in ascending order only. i'm waiting..

Hashtable and HashMap don't keep order at all. If you need order you should check out TreeMap (user defined order based on the keys) or LinkedHashMap (order based on insertion order / access order).
