Using plain maps, you’d do something like Listing 1-10. Listing 1-10. put("readme", new File("README")); // Later.... get("readme"); } Note the (File) notation. This is known as a cast. It tells Java that this object is actually a File. But there’s nothing to stop you adding a String. Or a Uri, or any other object you can think of to your map. Which is fine and dandy for a small program, but if your program starts going up in complexity, mistakes happen. If you do make a mistake, that cast will throw a runtime exception, which can be annoying.

Preference files are flat . . one level of keys. The Java approach to this—and you’ll see it all over—is to use dot notation in the keys.
