Efficient Singletons in legacy code

leave a comment »

The app I’m maintaining is not Spring-enabled so I am faced with the possibility of writing code for singleton objects. To my mild surprise, I discovered that Java 5 has made singleton creation considerably less bug-prone. There’s also better practices for double-checked locking, if your code (attempts to) swing that way.
