Hi all,

I'm trying to compile a simple enum:



I receive 1 error:


Elaborator.java:5: integer number too large: 9223372036854775797
Num1(9223372036854775797),
^
1 error


I don't understand why!!

Thanks!

Non floating point numeric literals in Java are considered to be integers and that number is too large to be an integer. If you want it to be considered a long put L on the end


Note - always use a capital L for this as a lowercase l might be mistaken for the digit 1.
