Data table in cucumber

We can pass the Data table with key and value as shown in below example.
Feature: Simple Datatable feature

Scenario: Test web title
  Given I am on home page of xyz site
  And I submit the form with below details
    |name      | sagar  |
    |id        | 98989  |
    |address   | mumbai |
  Then I see that form submission is successful
Here is the step definition class for above scenario. Note how we have converted the data table to map and accessed the keys and values.
package org.softpost;

import cucumber.api.DataTable;

import java.util.List;
import java.util.Map;

public class DatatableSteps {

    @Given("^I am on home page of xyz site$")
    public void i_am_on_home_page_of_xyz_site() throws Throwable {
        System.out.println("Navigate to home page 

    @Given("^I submit the form with below details$")
    public void i_submit_the_form_with_below_details(DataTable arg1) throws Throwable {
        Map<String,String> m =  arg1.asMap(String.class,String.class);
Filling form with below data
        for( String k : m.keySet())
            System.out.println("Key -> " + k + " Value -> " + m.get(k));

    @Then("^I see that form submission is successful$")
    public void i_see_that_form_submission_is_successful() throws Throwable {
Verify form success message");

Here is the output of execution of above feature file.
