How to set Priority & Severity using Plain java API

I am using the following code 

Identifier<IPriority> iPrio = Identifier.create(IPriority.class,"High");
Identifier<ISeverity> iSever = Identifier.create(ISeverity.class,"Major");

but the above code adds one more entry to the enumeration instead of selecting existing one.

Can anyone tell me what mistake i am doing?

the third post here shows how to go the other way, (get the human value of enumerations) but uses the right apis to get the values.

so, you would get the list of values for the list of enum entries, find the literal value that matches and use that.
the severity enum looks like this

                <enumeration attributeTypeId="severity" name="Severity">
                    <literal icon="processattachment:/enumeration/unassigned2.gif" id="severity.literal.l1" name="Unclassified"/>
                    <literal icon="processattachment:/enumeration/minor.gif" id="severity.literal.l2" name="Minor"/>
                    <literal default="true" icon="processattachment:/enumeration/normal.gif" id="severity.literal.l3" name="Normal"/>
                    <literal icon="processattachment:/enumeration/major.gif" id="severity.literal.l4" name="Major"/>
                    <literal icon="processattachment:/enumeration/critical.gif" id="severity.literal.l5" name="Critical"/>
                    <literal icon="processattachment:/enumeration/blocker.gif" id="severity.literal.l6" name="Blocker"/>

to set "Major" the value is " severity.literal.l4"

 Thanks a lot. I think i will go with the simple "severity.literal.l4"
