Hi All,
What is a package? How to create and use the package?.
I am reading "Thinking in Java" and Java language specs. I am confused with this concept.Please give me details about this with some example.

Thanks in advance,
Mubeen Shaik.

You might like to start with:
  • The Packages tutorial at
  • Chapter 5 of Thinking In Java, seeing you're reading this already.

  • I think you'll find these sites more thorough and readable than asking questions here - at least for the fundamentals of packages. If you have any specific questions about them though, people here will be more than happy to help you.
