Code:
package com.myjava.ip;

import java.net.InetAddress;
import java.net.UnknownHostException;

public class MyIpByHost {

    public static void main(String a[]){
    
        try {
            InetAddress host = InetAddress.getByName("www.java2novice.com");
            System.out.println(host.getHostAddress());
        } catch (UnknownHostException ex) {

Difference between Enumeration and Iterator
The functionality of Enumeration and the Iterator are same. You can get remove() from Iterator to remove an element, while while Enumeration does not have remove() method. Using Enumeration you can only traverse and fetch the objects, where as using Iterator we can also add and remove the objects. So Iterator can be useful if you want to manipulate the list and Enumeration is for read-only access.
Famous Quotations
