I have designed a coin Flipping program as follows:


But i want to design it using Enums but i am not getting exactly how to do it. This is my start


Please guide me if we can shuffle the enum values only and get the result to be the enum fields.

Have a look through the Enum class. Also the Java™ Language Specification section. You will see a values() method; you might be able to use that to get the individual objects from their number.

First i have one more question, is it possible to define a shuffle method taking only the enum fields into account and shuffling and returning them

I don't quite understand what you want to achieve but it's not hard at all to enhance an enum with a method that returns the enum constants at random,
