I need to get a grasp on what Enums are in java, but the documentation is not helping to much and the Library search (in Treehouse) turned out nothing .

Can someone point to a good article or explanation for Enums?

I do not have time to write out an explanation myself (at work right now), but here is an article I can link to you, that provides a decent explanation and some examples for Enums.
