Problem Name: Java Singleton Pattern

Problem Link:

In this HackerRank Functions in Java programming problem solution,

"The singleton pattern is a design pattern that restricts the instantiation of a class to one object. This is useful when exactly one object is needed to coordinate actions across the system."
- Wikipedia: Singleton Pattern

Complete the Singleton class in your editor which contains the following components:

  1. A private Singleton non parameterized constructor.
  2. A public String instance variable named str.
  3. Write a static method named getSingleInstance that returns the single instance of the Singleton class.

Once submitted, our hidden Solution class will check your code by taking a String as input and then using your Singleton class to print a line.
