Enum AccountingYearDivision

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    java.io.Serializable, java.lang.Comparable<AccountingYearDivision>

    public enum AccountingYearDivision
    extends java.lang.Enum<AccountingYearDivision>
    How an Accounting year is divided.

    An Accounting calendar system generally divides a year into smaller periods, similar in length to regular calendar months. The most common divisions either use 12 such 'months' (requiring one every quarter to be 5 weeks instead of 4), or use 13 of 4 weeks each (making one quarter have an extra month, or each quarter have partial months).

    Implementation Requirements:

    This is an immutable and thread-safe enum.

    • Method Detail

      • values

        public static AccountingYearDivision[] 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 (AccountingYearDivision c : AccountingYearDivision.values())
            System.out.println(c);
        
        Returns:
        an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared
      • valueOf

        public static AccountingYearDivision valueOf​(java.lang.String name)
        Returns the enum constant of this type with the specified name. The string must match exactly an identifier used to declare an enum constant in this type. (Extraneous whitespace characters are not permitted.)
        Parameters:
        name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
        Returns:
        the enum constant with the specified name
        Throws:
        java.lang.IllegalArgumentException - if this enum type has no constant with the specified name
        java.lang.NullPointerException - if the argument is null
