The AbstractMap.values() method of AbstractMap class in Java is used to create a collection out of the values of the map. It basically returns a Collection view of the values in the AbstractMap.

Syntax:

AbstractMap.values()

Parameters: The method does not accept any parameters.

Return Value: The method is used to return a collection view containing all the values of the map.

Below programs are used to illustrate the working of AbstractMap.values() Method:

Program 1: Mapping String Values to Integer Keys.




// Java code to illustrate the values() method
  
import java.util.*;
  
public class Abstract_Map_Demo {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Creating an empty AbstractMap
        AbstractMap<Integer, String>
            abs_map = new TreeMap<Integer, String>();
  
        // Mapping string values to int keys
        abs_map.put(10, "Geeks");
        abs_map.put(15, "4");
        abs_map.put(20, "Geeks");
        abs_map.put(25, "Welcomes");
        abs_map.put(30, "You");
  
        // Displaying the AbstractMap
        System.out.println("Initial Mappings are: "
                           + abs_map);
  
        // Using values() to get the set view of values
        System.out.println("The collection is: "
                           + abs_map.values());
    }
}


Output:

Initial Mappings are: {10=Geeks, 15=4, 20=Geeks, 25=Welcomes, 30=You}
The collection is: [Geeks, 4, Geeks, Welcomes, You]

Program 2: Mapping Integer Values to String Keys.




// Java code to illustrate the values() method
  
import java.util.*;
  
public class Abstract_Map_Demo {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Creating an empty AbstractMap
        AbstractMap<String, Integer>
            abs_map = new TreeMap<String, Integer>();
  
        // Mapping int values to string keys
        abs_map.put("Geeks", 10);
        abs_map.put("4", 15);
        abs_map.put("Geeks", 20);
        abs_map.put("Welcomes", 25);
        abs_map.put("You", 30);
  
        // Displaying the AbstractMap
        System.out.println("Initial Mappings are: "
                           + abs_map);
  
        // Using values() to get the set view of values
        System.out.println("The collection is: "
                           + abs_map.values());
    }
}


Output:

Initial Mappings are: {4=15, Geeks=20, Welcomes=25, You=30}
The collection is: [15, 20, 25, 30]

Note: The same operation can be performed with any type of Mappings with variation and combination of different data types.
