    Default Single Instance of a class

    Singleton Design Pattern creates only one instance of a class per JVM. Is there any other way to create ONLY one instance of a class?

    For all intensive purposes yes.

    just make the constructors private.

    You mean besides Singleton Pattern? Basically the idea is a private constructor and some methods to access the instance, but I 'm not quite sure that I understand your question.
