LeetCode – Maximum Size Subarray Sum Equals k (Java)

Given an array nums and a target value k, find the maximum length of a subarray that sums to k. If there isn't one, return 0 instead.

The sum of the entire nums array is guaranteed to fit within the 32-bit signed integer range.

Example 1:
Given nums = [1, -1, 5, -2, 3], k = 3,
return 4. (because the subarray [1, -1, 5, -2] sums to 3 and is the longest)

Java Solution

public int maxSubArrayLen(int[] nums, int k) {
    HashMap<Integer, Integer> map = new HashMap<Integer, Integer>();
    int max = 0;
    int sum=0;
    for(int i=0; i<nums.length; i++){
        sum += nums[i];
            max = Math.max(max, i+1);
        int diff = sum-k;
            max = Math.max(max, i-map.get(diff));
            map.put(sum, i);
    return max;
