Explain the impact of private constructor.Private Constructors can't be access from any derived classes neither from another class. So you have to provide a public function that calls the private constructor if the object has not been initailized, or you have to return an instance to the object, if it was initialized.
This can be useful for objects that can't be instantiated.
What is private constructor? What is the impact of private constructor?A private constructor prevents external instantiation of its containing class and sub classing. Objects can be created. But the creation is done internally.
A private constructor can be used in the following cases:
- Classes that have only static methods and members
- Classes that have only widely used static final members (constants)
- To utilize singletons
- To utilize factory methods
- To use enumerations that are type safe
