Salesforce Interview Questions 1.What is the difference between map and set in Salesforce collections.

Map: A map is a collection of key-value pairs where each unique key maps to a single value. Keys can be any primitive data type, while values can be a primitive, sObject, collection type or an Apex object. For example, the following table represents a map of countries and currencies: Country (Key) 'United States' 'Japan' 'France' 'England' 'India' 'Yen' 'Euro' 'Pound' 'Rupee'

Currency (Value) 'Dollar'

Similar to lists, map values can contain any collection, and can be nested within one another. For example, you can have a map of Integers to maps, which, in turn, map Strings to lists. A map can only contain up to five levels of nested collections inside it.

For example, the following table represents a set of String, that uses city names: 'San Francisco' 'New York' 'Paris' 'Tokyo' To declare a set, use the Set keyword followed by the primitive data type name within <> characters.
