How to use Singleton Notification in android?

Before getting into an example, we should know what singleton design pattern is.  A singleton is a design pattern that restricts the instantiation of a class to only one instance. Notable uses include controlling concurrency and creating a central point of access for an application to access its data store.

This example demonstrates How to use Singleton Notification in android

Step 1 − Create a new project in Android Studio, go to File ⇒ New Project and fill all required details to create a new project.

Step 2 − Add the following code to res/layout/activity_main.xml.

<?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android = "http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
   xmlns:tools = "http://schemas.android.com/tools"
   android:layout_width = "match_parent"
   android:layout_height = "match_parent"
   tools:context = ".MainActivity"
   android:orientation = "vertical">
      android:id = "@+id/show"
      android:text = "Show notification from singleTone"
      android:layout_width = "wrap_content"
      android:layout_height = "wrap_content" />

In the above code, we have taken a button. When the user clicks on the show button, it will show Notification from singleton class.

Step 3 − Add the following code to src/MainActivity.java

package com.example.andy.myapplication;
import android.os.Build;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.support.annotation.RequiresApi;
import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.Button;
public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
   Button show;
   singleTonExample singletonexample;
   protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
      show = findViewById(R.id.show);
      singletonexample = singleTonExample.getInstance();
      show.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
         @RequiresApi(api = Build.VERSION_CODES.O)
         public void onClick(View v) {

In the above code, we have used singleton Example as singleton class so create a call as singleTonExample.java and add the following code -

package com.example.andy.myapplication;
import android.app.AlertDialog;
import android.app.Notification;
import android.app.NotificationChannel;
import android.app.NotificationManager;
import android.content.Context;
import android.content.DialogInterface;
import android.graphics.Color;
import android.os.Build;
import android.speech.tts.TextToSpeech;
import android.support.annotation.RequiresApi;
import android.widget.Toast;
public class singleTonExample {
   public static final String ANDROID_CHANNEL_ID = "com.example.andy.myapplication";
   private static singleTonExample ourInstance = new singleTonExample();
   private Context appContext;
   private singleTonExample() { }
   public static Context get() {
      return getInstance().getContext();
   public static synchronized singleTonExample getInstance() {
      return ourInstance;
   public void init(Context context) {
      if (appContext = = null) {
         this.appContext = context;
   private Context getContext() {
      return appContext;
   @RequiresApi(api = Build.VERSION_CODES.O)
   public void notification(final MainActivity mainActivity) {
      NotificationManager notif =(NotificationManager)mainActivity.getSystemService(Context.NOTIFICATION_SERVICE);
      NotificationChannel androidChannel = new NotificationChannel(ANDROID_CHANNEL_ID,
         "Notification Channel", NotificationManager.IMPORTANCE_DEFAULT);
      Notification notify = null;
      notify = new  Notification.Builder(mainActivity,ANDROID_CHANNEL_ID).setContentTitle("Notification").setContentText("Sample Text").
      setContentTitle("Sample Subject").setSmallIcon(R.mipmap.ic_launcher).build();
      notif.notify(0, notify);

Let's try to run your application. I assume you have connected your actual Android Mobile device with your computer. To run the app from the android studio, open one of your project's activity files and click Run  icon from the toolbar. Select your mobile device as an option and then check your mobile device which will display your default screen –

Now click on the above button, it will show notification from singleton class as shown below -.
