Program: Basic Enum example.


Description:

This example defines a basic enum type called Fruits. It contains few constants representing fruits. The switch case uses these constants to execute conditions.


Code:
package com.java2novice.enums;

public class MyBasicEnum {

	private Fruits myFruit;
	
	public MyBasicEnum(Fruits fruit){
		this.myFruit = fruit;
	}
	
	public void getFruitDesc(){
		
		switch (myFruit) {
	        case GRAPE:
	            System.out.println("A grape is a non-climacteric fruit.");
	            break;
	                
	        case APPLE:
	            System.out.println("The apple is the pomaceous fruit.");
	            break;
	                     
	        case MANGO: 
	            System.out.println("The mango is a fleshy stone fruit.");
	            break;
	         
	        case LEMON: 
	        	System.out.println("Lemons are slow growing varieties of citrus.");
	            break;
	            
	        default:
	            System.out.println("No desc available.");
	            break;
	    }
	}
	
	public static void main(String a[]){
		MyBasicEnum grape = new MyBasicEnum(Fruits.GRAPE);
		grape.getFruitDesc();
		MyBasicEnum apple = new MyBasicEnum(Fruits.APPLE);
		apple.getFruitDesc();
		MyBasicEnum lemon = new MyBasicEnum(Fruits.LEMON);
		lemon.getFruitDesc();
		MyBasicEnum guava = new MyBasicEnum(Fruits.GUAVA);
		guava.getFruitDesc();
	}
}

enum Fruits {
    GRAPE, APPLE, MANGO, LEMON,GUAVA 
}

Output:
A grape is a non-climacteric fruit.
The apple is the pomaceous fruit.
Lemons are slow growing varieties of citrus.

Where can we use serialization?
Whenever an object has to sent over the network, those objects should be serialized. Also if the state of an object is to be saved, objects need to be serilazed.
