How to compare enum with string in java?

Solution for java 5 and java 6

As we know to compare string to string we need use method
string1.compareTo(string2);


so what you need to do is convert Enum to String

EnumExample.ENUM1.toString();

So now,to compare enum with string you need
string1.compareTo(EnumExample.ENUM1.toString());

 Simple :)
