Singleton Bean Scope in Spring

Singleton Bean Scope: Scopes a single bean definition to a single object instance per Spring IoC container. This is the default behavior of the spring container
When a bean is a singleton, only one shared instance of the bean will be managed, and all requests for beans with an id or ids matching that bean definition will result in that one specific bean instance being returned by the Spring container.
We can say another way, when you define a bean definition and it is scoped as a singleton, then the Spring IoC container will create exactly one instance of the object defined by that bean definition. This single instance will be stored in a cache of such singleton beans, and all 
Lets see with example which show the singleton scope of the 'zeroPoint' bean in the spring container.
Point.java
package com.dineshonjava.sdnext.beanscope.tutorial;

public class Point
{
 private int x;
 private int y;
 /**
  * @return the x
  */
 public int getX() {
  return x;
 }
 /**
  * @param x the x to set
  */
 public void setX(int x) {
  this.x = x;
 }
 /**
  * @return the y
  */
 public int getY() {
  return y;
 }
 /**
  * @param y the y to set
  */
 public void setY(int y) {
  this.y = y;
 }
}

Once you are done with creating source and bean configuration files, let us run the application. If everything is fine with your application, this will print the above message: See the both address value of the object is same.


Bean scopes using annotation:
spring.xml
<beans xmlns:aop="http://www.springframework.org/schema/aop" xmlns:context="http://www.springframework.org/schema/context" xmlns:p="http://www.springframework.org/schema/p" xmlns:security="http://www.springframework.org/schema/security" xmlns:tx="http://www.springframework.org/schema/tx" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans" xsi:schemalocation="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans">
  
<context:component-scan base-package="com.dineshonjava.sdnext.beanscope.tutorial">
</context:component-scan></beans>
Here component-scan element has attribute 'base-package'. base-package contain the base package of the Bean class.
base-package = "com.dineshonjava.sdnext.beanscope.tutorial"
Ponit.java
package com.dineshonjava.sdnext.beanscope.tutorial;

import org.springframework.context.annotation.Scope;
import org.springframework.stereotype.Service;

@Service
@Scope("singleton")
public class Point
{
 private int x;
 private int y;
 /**
  * @return the x
  */
 public int getX() {
  return x;
 }
 /**
  * @param x the x to set
  */
 public void setX(int x) {
  this.x = x;
 }
 /**
  * @return the y
  */
 public int getY() {
  return y;
 }
 /**
  * @param y the y to set
  */
 public void setY(int y) {
  this.y = y;
 }
}
Annotation @Service:
Target : Class
Description:
Here @Service is streotype annotation which declared above the class name that means this class is a bean of the spring container.
In Spring container this bean recognized by the id "point" means that same as the class name except first letter of the class name is the small letter.
for example: class 'Point' get as 'point' bean
                    class 'Circle' get as 'circle' bean
Annotation @Scope:
Target : Class
Description:
Here @Scope is annotation which declared above the class name that define the scope the bean
 @Scope("singleton")
 @Scope("prototype")
