From what I understand, an enum is a very limited class.

My question is, what performance benefits does an enum have over a class?
How big is an enum over a class?

Enum is just a bit of syntactical sugar to make a very common pattern more easy to code. It's no faster.

Can design patterns increase performance *considerably*?

Design patterns are not about performance. Just think of them of tactics for solving common design problems. Using them leads to well structured, maintainable and expandable code. Not necessarily a performance boost. Maybe you'd be interested to read the book "Design patterns for Java".

Umm, well isn't that the idea behind design patterns, having a set of good constructs for solving common design problems?  Huh
