What is a WeakHashMap in Java ?
WeakHashMap is a class similar to IdentityHashMap. Internally, it is represented by a Hashtable.
It is not a synchronized class. We can make a WeakHashMap thread safe by using Collections.synchronizedMap() method. An entry in WeakHashMap is automatically removed when it is no longer in ordinary use.
The presence of a mapping for a given key does not prevent the key from being discarded by the garbage collector. WeakHashMap also permits null keys and null values.
