You can use Collections.max(Collection) to find the maximum element out of any collection. Similarly, for a HashMap, you can use the same method on its keySet() or values(), depending upon whether you want maximum key, or maximum value.

Also, if you want as such, you can use a TreeSet and TreeMap instead, that stores the elements in sorted key order.
