Get size of LinkedHashMap example

With this example we are going to demonstrate how to get the size of a LinkedHashMap, that is the number of key-value mappings in this LinkedHashMap. In short, to get the size of a LinkedHashMap you should:

  • Create a new LinkedHashMap.
  • Populate the linkedHashMap with elements, with put(K key, V value) API method of LinkedHashMap.
  • Invoke size() API method of LinkedHashMap. It returns the int number of key-value pairs that the linkedHashMap contains.

Let’s take a look at the code snippet that follows:

package com.javacodegeeks.snippets.core;
import java.util.LinkedHashMap;
public class SizeLinkedHashMap {
  public static void main(String[] args) {
    // Create a LinkedHashMap and populate it with elements
    LinkedHashMap linkedHashMap = new LinkedHashMap();

    // int size() operation returns the number of key value pairs stored in LinkedHashMap    
    System.out.println("Size of LinkedHashMap : " + linkedHashMap.size());
