    Description

      We need a method that retrieves a concept from the database by either its identifier ie.( id or uuid), name or mapping.

      We already have such a method living in modules like htmlformentry => HtmlFormEntryUtil#getConcept (id) .

      The trigger of creating this ticket was: I found myself doing a copy and paste of the above method into the appframework module and we thought of having such a method live in core for reusability across all module.

      On creation of the utility method, similar methods in community supported modules should be deprecated eg. HtmlFormEntryUtil#getConcept (id)
