Let’s discuss mediator design pattern with below example. We are considering group chat application. A user can send and receive the messages. If a user send a message, it should be received by all other members in the group.


package com.w3spoint;
public class ChatMediator {
	public static void displayMessage(String msg, User user){
		System.out.println("User: " + user.getName() + ", Message: " + msg);

package com.w3spoint;
public class User {
   private String name;
   public String getName() {
      return name;
   public void setName(String name) { = name;
   public User(String name){  = name;
   public void sendMessage(String message){

package com.w3spoint;
public class MediatorPatternTest {
   public static void main(String args[]){
      User bharat = new User("Bharat");
      User sahdev = new User("Sahdev");
      User richi = new User("Richi");
      bharat.sendMessage("Hello Richi");
      richi.sendMessage("Hello Bharat");
      sahdev.sendMessage("Hi all");


User: Bharat, Message: Hello Richi
User: Richi, Message: Hello Bharat
User: Sahdev, Message: Hi all
