scala hashmap multiple values

I am new to Scala, and I would like to implement a simple hashtable that has int keys and string values.

I tried the following code:

import scala.collection.mutable.HashMap
val test_map = new HashMap[Int, String]
test_map += 10 -> "prog_1"
test_map += 20 -> "prog_2"
test_map += 25 -> "prog_3"
test_map += 15 -> "prog_4"
test_map += 10 -> "prog_8"

However the value of test_map(10) is not "prog_1", "prog_8" it is just "prog_8". It seems that this hashmap is just a key, value function which cannot have multiple values. Is there a simple way to have a multi-value hash table in Scala?

You can use a MultiMap if you don't care about preserving insertion order for values with the same key:

import scala.collection.mutable.{ HashMap, MultiMap, Set }

val test = new HashMap[Int, Set[String]] with MultiMap[Int, String]

test.addBinding(10, "prog_1")
test.addBinding(20, "prog_2")
test.addBinding(25, "prog_3")
test.addBinding(15, "prog_4")
test.addBinding(10, "prog_8")

Use the MultiMap trait, to take a standard mutable HashMap and enhance it with some convenient methods for handling multi-valued maps

import scala.collection.mutable.HashMap
import scala.collection.mutable.MultiMap    
import scala.collection.mutable.Set

val test_map = new HashMap[Int, Set[String]] with MultiMap[Int, String]
test_map.addBinding(10 ,"prog_1")
test_map.addBinding(20 ,"prog_2")
test_map.addBinding(25 ,"prog_3")
test_map.addBinding(15 ,"prog_4")
test_map.addBinding(10 ,"prog_8")
