I have a question about one of the question on Marcus Green's eXamulator 5.0. Enum is defined in the package java.lang, java.lang is automatically imported and you can't redefine a class at the same level right?
I don't understand how the following code works:
I also don't understand why the checkbox is declared as an int when we're working with enums.

If you add java.lang.Enum then the given code doesn't compile. and If you add [code] java.lang.* and also which is by default added, then it compiles fine.
so i belive that , the class Enum is not imported until you use that in your code without defining it. In the given code.If you use Enum next then,that will not be from java.lang instead that will be the one you defined. I think Enum is not redefined,as it is not imported yet

Since they are two different things which only share the name.
