From my point of view, you can reuse any own class and also any third parties class as a utility class. If so, then you can place the class into src/Utility folder. Please use the proper namespace. After that, you can use that class anywhere in CakPHP 3.x.


Say, you have a class named Jorge, save it into src/Utility folder using file name Jorge.php. Put namespace App\Utility; statement top of your Jorge.php file.


In which file you want to use this class, just put use App\Utility\Jorge;. After that, you can call the class into that file.


If you have a third party package of many classes, then you can follow
