What Type are the values in your Map? Unless this is deliberately Java 1.4 code then you should parameterize your Collections which means you define your Map as Map<String, String> or with whatever Types you actually have in there.

Tim ,
Thanks for replying me.

I used the isEmpty() to avoid the empty value in a map itself. Its adding only keys those have values.

Thanks.

if map contains string values

Why can't you try like this


list.removeAll(Arrays.asList("", null));

removes empty values and null values from list
