Hi Sain,

A Utility class is understood to only have static methods and be stateless. You would not create an instance of such a class.

A Helper can be a utility class or it can be stateful or require an instance be created.

Create Utility class if you want to have methods that are used by several operations. Like method to genrate random number.

Create Helper class for storing codes for specific object/requiremnts. Like creating helper classes to store code for object triggers.


Mark this as solution if it helps you out.


Thanks
Jai
