    Get Method in Hashmap

    Can any one of you please explain me as how get() method works internally in HashMap class?Does it internally call equals() method to compare the key which we pass as a parameter in get()?

    Since it is said that Strings override equals(), they can be used as a key in hashMap, I just wanted to know if get() internally uses equals() to compare the keys to retreive the value.

    it actually uses both hashCode and equals for find the keys.
