Hello Folks,

I have a question. I declared a HashMap like:-

HashMap<String, ArrayList> map = new HashMap<String, ArrayList>();

ArrayList test = new ArrayList();
test.add("hardwork");
test.add("dedication");
map.put("sucess", test );

Now the data is like this in the Map
Key Value
sucess [harwork, dedication]

If i want to add values X and Y to the key "sucess", so that the value is like [harwork, dedication, X, Y]. How do i do it?

If you're not sure if the key is already present you can use the following technique:
