Store an object in a hash value?

I want to store a series of objects in a key/value format. I tried using a HashMap but all I get back are NULLS so I'm assuming the object isn't being stored. Is there a way I can store objects in a key/value format?

Same answer than in Store Object in key/value format thread in Sun forums: show what you try to do. At least a significant running small sample.

If you are using your own object as a key then you should override equals and hashcoe method.


Failure is not an option.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
