Java Collection Tutorial - Java TreeMap.higherEntry(K key)


TreeMap.higherEntry(K key) has the following syntax.

public Map.Entry <K , V> higherEntry(K key)


In the following code shows how to use TreeMap.higherEntry(K key) method.

/*from w  ww  .jav a  2  s . co m*/
import java.util.TreeMap;

public class Main {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      TreeMap<Integer, String>  treemap = new TreeMap<Integer, String> ();
      // populating tree map
      treemap.put(2, "two");
      treemap.put(1, "one");
      treemap.put(3, "three");
      treemap.put(6, "six");
      treemap.put(5, "from");
      // getting higher entry for key 4          
      System.out.println("Checking values of the map");
      System.out.println("Value is: "+ treemap.higherEntry(4));

The code above generates the following result.
