You are correct. HashMap should really be its own implementation of
the Hashtable class (with no synchronization). I needed some definition
of HashMap so that my java.util.jar package would compile. More work
is needed to get it in line with the spec. Much of the java.util.jar impl
is unfinished but it does enought to get the jar implementation working.
