I would like to make a simple project that modulate the database request - response action. The presented below code work fine. However, I would like to make some envelop for my employee database in order to avoid to place it in main function. I thought about Enum class but encounter in some compile error. Moreover, I don't even know does it possible to make Enum work in this way. If not please give me an idea what fit best for my purpose. Thanks in advance dear Experts !

Since you're learning still, see
http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/java/javaOO/enum.html

This will show you how enum has no connection at all with your goal - but you need to know about them anyway

I think the best way to do it is to create a class not enum
that class contains a method that when you call it from main it will add your employees for you .
package TaskCh;
import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.Calendar;


//********** ************************************************************
 class SearchEngine {

    public void searchRequest(ArrayList<Employee> db, int numberOfyears) {
        for (Employee item : db) {
            if (item.getYearsOfWork() >= numberOfyears) {           	
            	item.getRequestedInformation();
            }
        }
    }

}
//********** ************************************************************

 class Employee { 	// Class Employee // start 
	 
    private String firstName;
    private String middleName;
    private String familyName;

    private int monthOfstart;


    // The constructor of the class // starts
    Employee (String firstName,
    		  String middleName,
    		  String familyName,
              String address,
              int yearOfstart,
              int monthOfstart) {
        this.familyName 	= familyName;
        this.firstName 		= firstName;
        this.middleName 	= middleName;
        this.address 		= address;
        this.yearOfstart 	= yearOfstart;
