See for submissions details.

toMap(Object[]) is used to initialise a Map, such as a HashMap with data.
asMap(Object[]) exposes an array as a Map, thus can't have its size changed

is the same as
thus its not essential, but a useful convenience.

Both are useful methods. The former should probably have a variant called
  toMap(Object[], Map)
that adds the contents of the array to the specified map.
