Java Singleton Template For Eclipse

Free Resource
This is a template for easily creating an implementation of the Singleton Pattern on Eclipse. Open Window->Preferences->Java->Editor->Templates click on New and insert the code below on the pattern text area; add a name (I suggest "singleton") - whenever you type this name and press Ctrl+Space the code will be inserted in your class - and you're good to go.

private static ${enclosing_type} instance;

private ${enclosing_type}(){}

public static ${enclosing_type} getInstance(){
	if(null == instance){
		instance = new ${enclosing_type}();
	return instance;
