string to enum in java

We have valueOf() method which can be used to convertĀ a string to enum.

package convertstringtoenum;

enum EventReturnStatus {
    SUCCESS, FAILURE, HOLD;
}
public class StringToEnumExample {
public static void main(String[] args) {
	String s1 = "HOLD";
	
	EventReturnStatus returnStatus = EventReturnStatus.valueOf(s1);
	System.out.println(returnStatus);
	
}
}

Output is –

HOLD
