What will be the result of compilation and execution of the following code?

public class Test {
    enum Enum {
        ONE("oneInfo"), TWO("twoInfo"), THREE("threeInfo");
        private static String info = ""; //1
        Enum(String info) {
            this.info = info;     //2
        public static String getInfo() {
            return info;

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        System.out.println(Enum.TWO.getInfo()); // 3
You can't reference static fields in enum's constructor. Compilation error: illegal reference to static field from initializer.
For code to compile you need to remove static keyword from info field and getInfo() menthod.
