Enumeration Question

I have class which implements Enumeration interface.

It prints all the elements (there are 3 elements)

But with the following code

The function gets called only once (for one element) ? What is wrong with the above ?

thank you

Please reserve this forum for questions on advanced Java. I have moved this post to a more appropriate forum.

Offhand the most likely guess is that children() and breadthFirstEnumeration() return different enumerations. Maybe children() returns only immediate children, and breadthFirstEnumeration() returns grandchildren, etc. as well? Are these two methods supposed to return the same enumeration, or not?
