How To Access Objects Returned From A Helper/Utility Class?

I have a helper/utility class that specializes in
creating a connection pool and providing connections.

How do I access this Connection (conn) returned from the helper/utility class in another class? (i.e. I want to use conn.createStatement(); and query a database in TestServlet class.)

Wouldn't you just do this:

If your helper is a connection pool you need logic something like this:

This has been done zillions of times. Try google for "java connection pool" to find some ready to use. Is that the kind of thing you were asking?


A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
