You have to override hashCode() method (with capital C).

Sorry my mistake:

Thanks for correcting.

If i pass null set.put(null), it gives me NullPointer Expection, i know nullponter means its trying to refer th object with null reference in memory.
Correct me if iam wrong

I guess you want '||' in your equals method instead of '&&'.

You get the NullPointerException on the line

You get null from the Set, so t == null, so t.count gives you the exception.
So you don't get the exception in the setting, but in the getting
