Re: Meaning of Java Packages
Hello and welcome to the forums.
Eclipse gives you the option to name the package whatever you like. When you create a package, your bin and src folders for that project will be in there. If you do not set a package, it defaults to the default package.
A Java package is a mechanism for organizing Java classes into namespaces similar to the modules of Modula. Java packages can be stored in compressed files called JAR files, allowing classes to download faster as a group rather than one at a time. Programmers also typically use packages to organize classes belonging to the same category or providing similar functionality.
