It would be great if when an enum was typed in a file and the step definition tried to match and failed, instead of saying something like:

cucumber.runtime.xstream.converters.ConversionException: Couldn't convert "black" to an instance of: [class com.otpp.tim.acceptance.cucumber.pages.employee.EmployeeAtAGlanceStepDefinitions$Color]

it also output color.values() so that the person writing the feature file could see immediately what all of their options were.

This would be useful for testers who do not want to have to delve into the source code.
