The main difference is Enumerator does not provide a standard method for
for removing tehe objects.
Iterator has provided method for removing the objects.

Well to start off with there is no class/interface in java called as Enumerator. Though there is Interface called Enumeration.

Iterator takes the place of Enumeration in the Java collections framework. Iterators differ from enumerations in two ways:

1) Iterators allow the caller to remove elements from the underlying collection during the iteration with well-defined semantics.
2) Method names have been improved.
