Java enum lookup using a String

0 votes

I need to find the enum value of String, suppose “Y” that should be Test.Y.

My enum looks like below:

public enum Test {
    W, X, Y, Z
}

Should I use Enum.valueOf() or something else?

Yes, you are going on the right path. Using Test.valueOf(“Y”) will return Test.Y.

Just remember this, the valueOf() is case-sensitive and will throw an IllegalArgumentException. So, when you are passing the arguments, be careful regarding the values.
