A sonar rule question in SonarQube 7.5

(Little Fly) #1

versions : SonarQube 7.5

When I use sonarQube to analyze my code, a rule in sonarQube show “Remove the ‘volatile’ keyword from this field.”
But I want to create a singleton object. My code is like the following:
public class Singleton {
private static volatile Singleton singleton = null;

private Singleton(){}

public static Singleton getSingleton(){
    synchronized (Singleton.class){
        if(singleton == null){
            singleton = new Singleton();
    return singleton;

I think the keyword volatile is necessary. If remove volatile, it may catch an error.

So, I want to know whether this rule is correct.
