In Singleton Pattern, You can't create a object for others class. They are restricted by making the constructor of their as private.


For the Singleton class the following is Mandatory:
1. Constructor should be private.
2. The object should be static.
(i.e., static classname ref = new classname(); )
3. Use static method to get the instance.

"Mandatory" is a bit strong there. Singleton has a mechanism to control the number of instances of a class. The number is usually "one" but there could be cases where some other small, controlled number is appropriate. And there are other mechanisms to control creation besides a private constructor.

The simplest mechanism is as described above:


Do look up the other threads on this topic. We've discussed WHY you'd want a singleton and some of the dangers many times before.
