What is singleton class?




Answer Posted / ranganathkini

A Singleton is a class which at any given time has only one
instance and it does not allow more instances to be created.
Such classes do not have an accessible constructor, for example:

public class Singleton {
// class is automatically instantiated when the
// class is loaded
private static Singleton instance = new Singleton()

// constructor is made inaccessible by declaring
// it private
private Singleton() { ... }

// Access to the single instance of the class is
// provided by a static accessor method
public static Singleton getInstance() {
// returns a reference of the private instance
return instance;
}

// rest of the class implementation
}
