Core Java » On Sep 29, 2012 By Sivateja

Making java class as singleton is very important in some real time projects, we may need to have exactly one instance of a class. Suppose in hibernate  SessionFactory should be singleton as its heavy weight, and some other Banking related projects mainly.

Some times creating singleton classes are very very important, if we are creating the object of some classes again and again ‘N’ number of times, that will definitely kills the memory and finally our application will get down, so we can avoid that with this concept.
