Here is my understanding.
1. iterator() method of Set interface returns Iterator interface.
API is : Iterator<E> iterator();
2. As per API, entrySet() returns Set<Map.Entry<K, V>>
API is : Set<Map.Entry<K, V>> entrySet();
My questions are

There is no difference between Map.Entry<Integer, String> and Entry<Integer, String>. It's the same class. It is valid syntax because you imported Map.Entry.

Well the first iterators next method will return a Entry<Integer, String> and the second will return a Entry (non-generic).
