I am trying to store a list of students with their marks into a
hash table. When i try to show the students list , my marks array is having only the last student data. Rest all lost.
Class Student{
private String name;
private int marks [];
public Student (String _name, String _matricNum, int _marks[])
name = _name;
matricNum = _matricNum;
marks = _marks;
public int[] getMarks(){
return marks;

Class clas{
private Hashtable studhash = new Hashtable();
public void registerStudent
(String name, String matricNum, int marks[]){

Student s = new Student (name, matricNum, marks);
studhash.put(s.getName(), s );
public void showStudents(){
Collection coll = studhash.values();
Iterator i = coll.iterator();
while (i.hasNext()){
Student s = (Student);;
int[] rmarks = s.getMarks();
for (int i = 0; i < rmarks.length; i++){
System.out.println("Mark" + i + " " + rmarks[i]);



Public class Main{
String name, matricNum;
Class clas = new Class();
int[] marks = new int[2];

while (cont = true) {
name = getLineFromConsole("Name:");
matricNum = getLineFromConsole("MatricNumber:");
marks[0] = Integer.parseInt(getLineFromConsole("Marks1"));
marks[1] = Integer.parseInt(getLineFromConsole("Marks2"));

thanks in advance

The Java Ranch has thousands of visitors every week, many with surprisingly similar names. To avoid confusion we have a naming convention, described at . We require names to have at least two words, separated by a space, and strongly recommend that you use your full real name. Please log in with a new name which meets the requirements.
With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
