Java Enumerations

A JUG talk I presented on enumerations in Java.

I cover:

  • The old "type-safe enumeration pattern"
  • Using enums for values
  • Adding data and methods to enums
  • Using enums for the Gang-of-Four State Pattern
  • Using enums to emulate function pointers in Java
  • EnumSet and EnumMap
