Add "Switch" or "Case" Statement to Apex

Development (Apex, LWC & VF)

Add a statement in Apex that is comparable to the "switch" statement in Java or the "Case" statement in other languages like VBA. Use of these statements is much more effective from a coding standpoint that extensive nested "if-else" statements.

    We've started development on the switch statement for Apex, thanks to everybody who provided commentary on the draft specification. It's currently targeting the Summer 18 release.
