Enum

Enum serves as a type of fixed number(meaing limited to certain number) of constants and can be used at least for two things:

constant

public enum Month {
    JANUARY, FEBRUARY, ...
}

 

This is much better than creating a bunch of integer constants.

creating a singleton

public enum Singleton {
    INSTANCE

   // init
};
