This one should be pretty quick.
There is not much to it at first sight. It is the equivalent of what
case class is for
class but for
case object has everything a
object have. Feel free to go back to the corresponding episode. But add also some convenient method. For instance the `
toString is a lot nicer, allowing you to get the name of the
case object itself which allow for great logging.
It was not easy to introduce only
case object because their main use case is in the implementation of the Scala v2.x Enumerations which we are going to see next time. I wanted a dedicated episode to Enumeration but couldn’t go for it until
case object were introduced. Now that it is done, see you next time.
