There is no such class. Perhaps you meant 'HashMap'. Case matters in Java.
And there are many other implementations of 'Map'.

There are lots of reasons to keep key-value pairs in memory, or to eschew
database systems in favor of other persistence mechanisms, "these days". If
you're using modern tools.

In fact, "these days" people are reinventing old-fashioned tools
("object-oriented" DBMSes, NoSQL) as if they were "modern". And RDBMSes have
been around for too long to consider them "modern" any more. These different
techniques - object-oriented (or "network") storage, in-memory maps, key-value
persistence - are all quite venerable and the decision points between them are
quite well established.
