I am trying to create a HashMap which string keys and HashSet of Strings as values. I wrote the following code for this.



The file cvtfile.txt has the following content:


The Output is:


I am not able to make out why is the value set that is read at last is getting mapped to all the keys.
I would be grateful for any comments/suggestions.

Thanks sir!
That corrected it.

So that means the put method of the HashMap class does not copy the object to the map. It just links the object to the map value, so that the last value added the object persists.

Yes, it does not copy the object (the content of the object), it only stores the reference to the object.
