This week's giveaway is in the Java/Jakarta EE forum. We're giving away four copies of Java EE 8 High Performance and have Romain Manni-Bucau on-line! See Second, you don't need to know the speed of a hashtable for the SCJP exam. So I am going to move this to the Java In General (Beginner) forum.
The javadoc for Hashtable doesn't say anything about the speed, while the javadoc for HashMap does. ("This implementation provides constant-time performance for the basic operations...") Of course, the javadoc for hashTable doesn't exist at all, so perhaps this is a moot point.
