// Implement Observers class 
class Observers implements Observer {
    public void update(Observable obj, Object ob) {
        System.out.println("Obs is added");
    }
}

// Implement Observed Class
class Observed extends Observable {
    void added() {
        setChanged();
        notifyObservers();
    }
}

public class Main {
    // Implement Main Method
    public static void main(String args[]) {
        Observed observed = new Observed();
        Observers obs = new Observers();
