    Could you copy and paste the the API doc for those two classes as a starting point?

    Enumeration: An object that implements the Enumeration interface generates a series of elements, one at a time. Successive calls to the nextElement method return successive elements of the series.
    Iterator: An iterator over a collection. Iterator takes the place of Enumeration in the Java collections framework. Iterators differ from enumerations in two ways:

    Iterators allow the caller to remove elements from the underlying collection during the iteration with well-defined semantics.
    Method names have been improved.
    I suggest you use an Iterator.

    There you go.
    I die a little on the inside...

    using Enumeration one can Iterate over a Collection of elements.
    Iterator is same like that but able to delete the elements from the Collection.
