||Enums in Java (One More Time)|
|Subject:||switch or 'enums as objects'|
I like the enums-as-objects, because it forces me to use objects and to think OO. It happened quite often that I introduced an enum-as-object and in a later phaze, added behavior to the enum.
What's called 'Seamless Integration with Other Language Features' in the article seems to be not OO at all: in stead of using polymorphism and implementing a method on all days, a switch is preferred.
