Enumerations serve the purpose of representing a group of named constants in a programming language. Enums are used when we know all possible values at compile-time, such as choices on a menu, rounding modes, command-line flags, etc. It is not necessary that the set of constants in an enum type stay fixed for all time.
Steps To create an ArrayList from an Enumeration:
- Create a vector and add elements to it.
- Use the element() method of vector to get the enumeration of the vector element.
- Using the list(Enumeration e) method of the Collections to get the ArrayList.
Elements in vector : [Geeks, For, Geeks, 2020, 2021] Elements in arraylist : [Geeks, For, Geeks, 2020, 2021]
