    You are not making much sense. An enum is not a collection.

    You could if you really really want to, but there probably better ways other then enum like with lists and other data stuctures:

    Java Code:
    public enum type {One, Two, Three}
    
    public static boolean inEnumType(String name)
    {
       try
       {
          type.valueOf(name);
          return true;
       }
       catch(Exception e)
       {
          return false;
       }
    }
    
    ...
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
       System.out.println("One exists: " + inEnumType("One"));
       System.out.println("Two exists: " + inEnumType("Two"));
       System.out.println("Three exists: " + inEnumType("Three"));
       System.out.println("Four exists: " + inEnumType("Four"));
    }
