    Default Maps and adding to sets as values

    Right

    how do i add to (not overwrite) the set which is the value of a key.

    I need to keep the existing value of the set and just add to it within the map.

    I know using the put method to add to/overwrite a key/value but i need to just basically add to the set within the map (the value)

    any help would be appriciated
