Hi I have written an enum, FileExtensions which contains some file extensions ,

I have two ways to write this each extension names,

One way just specifying the lower case


Ex.
enum FileExtensions {
ppt, xls;
}

in this case I just have to get that enum and which will server my purpose, i.e. appending this enum name to file name.


Another way is as below,

please let me know which is the right,


public enum FileExtensions {
PPT("ppt"), PPTX("pptx"), DOC("doc"), DOCX("docx"), XLS("xls"), XLSX("xlsx"),
OK("ok"), ERR("err"), XMl("xml"), TMP("tmp");

// Extenstion used.
private String extension;

FileExtensions(final String extenstion) {
this.extension = extenstion;
}

/**
*
* This is overriden method.
*
* @see java.lang.Enum#toString().
* @return - String.
*/
@Override
public String toString() {
return extension;
}

}
