import java.util.Hashtable;

public class Main {
   public static void main(String args[]) {
      // create hash table 
      Hashtable<Integer,String> htable1 = new Hashtable<Integer,String>();      
      // put values in table
      htable1.put(1, "A");
      htable1.put(2, "B");
      htable1.put(3, "C");
      htable1.put(4, "from");
      System.out.println("Initial hash table value: "+htable1);
      String returnval=(String)htable1.put(1,"C");
      System.out.println("Return value: "+returnval);
      System.out.println("New hash table value: "+htable1); 

The code above generates the following result.
