Method Detail

values

public static HandlerResult[] values()
Returns an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared. This method may be used to iterate over the constants as follows:
for (HandlerResult c : HandlerResult.values())
    System.out.println(c);

Returns:
an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared
