Hi All,

I have a use case of an enum A, that has 4 values & these 4 values maps to 4 different emums , so that i can access the values of those enums


I can do A.Value_1.getMappedEnum().Value_1.1

or A.Value_2.getMappedEnum().Value_2.2

I feel this can be achieved by using generics + enums. I have not succeeded in doing so.
My source of truth is &

Could anyone please help me in achieving this.
