In the following code shows how to use TreeMap.put(K key, V value) method.

import java.util.TreeMap;

public class Main {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      TreeMap<Integer, String>  treemap = new TreeMap<Integer, String> ();
      treemap.put(2, "two");
      treemap.put(1, "one");
      treemap.put(3, "three");
      treemap.put(6, "six");
      treemap.put(5, "from");   
      // Putting value at key 3
      System.out.println("Value before modification: "+ treemap);            
      System.out.println("Value returned: "+ treemap.put(3,""));      
      System.out.println("Value after modification: "+ treemap);

The code above generates the following result.
