Subject How do you suggest working with enums?
Date Wed, 05 Dec 2007 16:14:32 GMT

If I have an enum to represent a lookup table, like:

public enum Color {
  RED (1, "Red"),
  GREEN (2, "Green"),
  BLUE (3, "Blue");

What is the best practice for both writing this enums into the database and
instantiating enums for the values read from the databse, using iBATIS ?

Somewhere, something would have to convert that Color to it's ID (like 3 for
Blue) when writing to the DB, and someone else will have to create a enum
base don the ID read (3 to Color.BLUE)

Any suggestions?
