The Google Singleton Detector, or GSD, is a tool which analyzes Java bytecode and detects the use of Singletons. It's not quite as simple as that, however. First, GSD doesn't only detect singletons; it detects four different types of global state, including singletons, hingletons, mingletons, and fingletons. Second, it outputs a graph with all these different types of static state highlighted, and shows all the classes that are directly dependent on them. The point of this tool is to allow you to see all of the uses of global state inside a project, as well as how they are all interrelated.
