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.)

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?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
