Dear all

I have a table as below


For the Bill_TYPE column , the value 0、1 and 2 represent different bill type.
Should I use an enum for the column mapping or only use the normal java String for the column mapping?

I think the java string for the column mapping is simpler than enum mapping in the application.
But use enum can avoid assign wrong type value in the code.

Can someone give me other suggestions?
thanks~
