Hello,
I just started to write my design document. (Of course, first
I made the application, as usual Although, I spent many days
on the design, before.)
At lock I described that I use HashMap and explained why it
is a good choice. But, I can not say it is better than Hashtable.
(Of course I made HashMap synchronized!) Can any one give me
some idea what is the difference between HashMap and Hashtable
(except null value and synchronization)?
Thanx a lot!
Ban
PS: I opened this topic in order to ask all the problem with
the design document. More questions and answers are welcomed.

If you mean you used Collections.synchronizedMap(), I'm willing to bet a beer on the fact that either your code is not threadsafe, or the HashMap does not need to be synchronized at all.
In any case, good reference Ian. In fact I suspect Sun would love to deprecate Hashtable, Vector and Enumeration, but they are still deeply entrenched in quite a few APIs.
