The best programmers are not marginally better than merely good ones. They are an order-of-magnitude better, measured by whatever standard: conceptual creativity, speed, ingenuity of design, or problem-solving ability.Randall E. Stross

A hash table supporting full concurrency of retrievals and adjustable expected concurrency for updates from multiple threads. Iterators are designed to be used by only one thread at a time. ConcurrentHashMap does not guarantee the runtime of its operations as part of its contract. It also allows tuning for certain load factors.

Full support for accessing from concurrent threads | |

Do not throw ConcurrentModificationException. | |

Iterators can be accessed from only one thread. | |

Does not allow null to be used as a key or value. | |

When multiple threads try to retrieve and update, most recently completed update take to retrieve the data | |

The concurrent update based on concurrencyLevel constructor argument. If only one thread is updating and others only read, you can start concurrencyLevel with one. |

ConcurrentHashMap | ConcurrentSkipListMap |
---|---|

Does not guarantee the runtime of its operations | Guarantees average O(log(n)) performance |

Does not allow null to be used as a key or value | Null value and null keys are not allowed |

Do not maintain insertion order | Elements fetched in natural order |

Support Only Serializable | Support cloneable and Serializable |

Do not support ceilingEntry, ceilingKey, firstEntry, floorEntry operations | Support ceilingEntry, ceilingKey, firstEntry, floorEntry operations |

If you need to allow multiple threads using a hash map, you can use ConcurrentHashMap.
