I pass a String parameter where can has value of this type:

"2.ACSC344,5.ACSC345,8.ACSC456"

I want somehow to read from this String and save it to hashtable.When I find the number(before dot) to save it as the key and when finding the code(after dot)save as the value of the key and I want to loop until all are saved.How can I do that if it's possible?

Try using String's split() method.

Keep in mind that this method uses regular expression, and . is a special character. You'll need to escape it: "\\."

To escape dot why the need of two slash symbols(\\). Is using one slash is not enough??

Sorry in case if this question is silly.

The slash is also a special character. Then you need two slashes to escape a slash

Like Rodrigo said, \ is a special character. The regular expression is just \. but you will need to escape that \ too.

Welcome to JavaRanch, ibrahim uzan.

By the way: Most people would use a HashMap nowadays rather than Hashtable; it is more efficient.
