I am not sure if the following is doable:
I have say a hashmap - key:"1" value: "one".
I want to convert this hashmap to a list - ["1":"one"]
Is this doable?

Yes. You can iterate over the map and insert them into the list.

Do you really want a List? There is no particular order to the entries in a Map. You can use a hybrid
list and Map
of you wish to introduce an ordering.
It is sorta covered in the
JavaRanch Style Guide
subject: create a list of key/value pairs
Convert List to a Map
Sorting Keys(Value Objects) in HashMap
Records in Arraylist
I want to check previous (value) of HashMap before adding the current key?
