I searched on net about ConcurrentHashMap but not able to understand it fully.

Could you please share any good link or explain about why to use ConcurrentHashMap and how it works?

Performance is *usually* the reason you'd use a ConcurrentHashMap over a "regular" synchronized HashMap.
Why??

Because:

1.) Writing to a ConcurrentHashMap locks only a portion of the map;
2.) Reads can generally occur without locking.

HOWEVER, that doesn't mean you can just replace all of your HashMap variables with ConcurrentHashMap variables and your code will run
flawlessly. You need, at a minimum, to replace all the "puts" with putIfAbsent.
HIGHLY recommend Java Concurrency In Practice by Brian Goetz (and others).

Hope this helps!

No, you wouldn't just blindly do that. The two have different semantics.
