    Description

      `EnumUtils` supports finding an enum based on its name. However in my experience it's often required to find an enum mapped by another value related to the enum. To use a very simple example: Mapping a string input to an enum, where the string does not match the enum name.

      I propose adding a `getEnumByPredicate` method, that returns the first found enum value matching a given predicate. Could also be expanded to return a list of all matching values.
