Hello ranchers,

Bettwen Hastable and HashMap.HashMap is synchronize / hashtable. Can anyone tell correct answer.
If HashMap is synchronized , then how can we synchronized it.
Same for Vector, Arraylist and LinkeList, among these which one is synchronized. How can we synchronized them.

Thanks
Dinesh

I think Hashtable is synchronized. And these are standard java API and if one of them is synchronized, that simply means that their implementation present in API provides a synchornized access! But you can apply your own synchronization methods/blocks while using them in your code!

Hashtable is synchronized not Hashtable
Vector is synchronized not ArrayList
you do not need to worry about synchronization while using these collection...synchronized means methods in that classs are synchronized

Hello,

There are two ways to make a hashmap synchronized. One is to call synchronized Map on Collections class and 2nd is to make your own class.
For eg.

Class MyMap extends HashMap {


public synchronized void put(...) {
super.put(...);
}

public synchronized void get(...) {
super.put(...);
}
}

similarly you can synchronized all the methods. So intead of creating an object of HashMap you will be creating an object og MyMap
