  • Simple, Naïve, and Wrong: More than you wanted to know about Scala Case Classes

    And for exactly the same reasons one shouldn't override equals and hashCode in a case class, they shouldn't manually implement an enumeration and instead let a well-tested macro (2.x) or the compiler itself (3.x) handle reliably doing the automated code generation. The more code that is generated by the compiler, the smaller the defects, technical debt, and security vulnerability surface areas.

    For Scala, check out the enumeratum library ( In my opinion its the best enum implementation I know of. It has all the features defined in the table, and the syntax is really clean. It even supports unique associated values (eg. unique String/Int keys).
