How to get all values of a HashMap

In this article, we will discuss how to get all values of a HashMap or implementation classes of Map interface like LinkedHashMap or TreeMap


HashMap –> retrieves values, in random order of keys
LinkedHashMap –> retrieves values, as per insertion order of keys
TreeMap –> retrieves values, as per some sorting order of keys



  • use values() method of Map interface
  • which returns Collection of values


Example: To get all values of a HashMap using values() method of Collection interface


Collection<String> values = hashMap.values();


import java.util.Collection;
import java.util.HashMap;

public class GetAllValuesOfHashMap {

	public static void main(String[] args) {

		// creating HashMap object of type <String, String>
		HashMap<String, String> hm = new HashMap<String, String>(); 

		// adding key-value pairs to HashMap object
		hm.put("Google", "Sundar Pichai");
		hm.put("Facebook", "Mark Zuckerberg");
		hm.put("LinkedIn", "Reid Hoffman");
		hm.put("Apple", "Steve Jobs");
		hm.put("Microsoft", "Bill Gates");

		System.out.println("all Key-Value pairs:\n\n" + hm + "\n\n");

		System.out.println("List of all values: \n");

		// Iterating value using values()
		Collection<String> founders = hm.values();
		for(String founder : founders) {


all Key-Value pairs:

{Facebook=Mark Zuckerberg, Microsoft=Bill Gates, Google=Sundar Pichai, 
Apple=Steve Jobs, LinkedIn=Reid Hoffman}

List of all values: 

Mark Zuckerberg
Bill Gates
Sundar Pichai
Steve Jobs
Reid Hoffman
