How do I create a Hashtable and iterates its contents?

The code snippet shows you how to create and instance of Hashtable that stores Integer values using a String keys. After that we iterates the elements of the Hashtable using the Enumeration interface.

package org.kodejava.example.util;

import java.util.Enumeration;
import java.util.Hashtable;

public class HashtableDemo {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        // Creates an instance of Hashtable
        Hashtable<String, Integer> numbers = new Hashtable<>();
        numbers.put("one", 1);
        numbers.put("two", 2);
        numbers.put("three", 3);

        // Returns an enumeration of the keys in this Hashtable
        Enumeration<String> keys = numbers.keys();
        while (keys.hasMoreElements()) {
            // Returns the next element of this enumeration if this
            // enumeration object has at least one more element to
            // provide
            String key = keys.nextElement();
            System.out.printf("Key: %s, Value: %d%n", key, numbers.get(key));
        }
    }
}

How do I read Vector object using Enumeration?

The following code snippets show you how to iterate and read java.util.Vector elements using the java.util.Enumeration.

package org.kodejava.example.util;

import java.util.Enumeration;
import java.util.Vector;

public class VectorEnumeration {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        Vector<String> data = new Vector<>();
        data.add("one");
        data.add("two");
        data.add("three");

        StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder("Data: ");

        // Iterates vector object to read it elements
        for (Enumeration enumeration = data.elements();
             enumeration.hasMoreElements();) {
            sb.append(enumeration.nextElement()).append(",");
        }

        // Delete the last ","
        sb.deleteCharAt(sb.length() - 1);
        System.out.println(sb.toString());
    }
}

How do I sort an Enumeration?

package org.kodejava.example.util;

import java.util.*;

public class EnumerationSort {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        // Creates random data for sorting source. Will use java.util.Vector
        // to store the random integer generated.
        Random random = new Random();
        Vector<Integer> data = new Vector<>();
        for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++) {
            data.add(Math.abs(random.nextInt()));
        }

        // Get the enumeration from the vector object and convert it into
        // a java.util.List. Finally we sort the list using
        // Collections.sort() method.
        Enumeration<Integer> enumeration = data.elements();
        List<Integer> list = Collections.list(enumeration);
        Collections.sort(list);

        // Prints out all generated number after sorted.
        for (Integer number : list) {
            System.out.println("Number = " + number);
        }
    }
}

An example result of the code above is:

Number = 574156412
Number = 692265226
Number = 852855412
Number = 858413518
Number = 1272648602
Number = 1851829368
Number = 1960139525
Number = 2053222887
Number = 2055598873
Number = 2081007654
