I come to a doubt on "How to use package in Java?"
I doesn't mean the naming convention of package (such as using reverse domain name e.g.

What I wish to ask is , let say my project involve 50 java files , how do I going to group them into different package ?
Anyone know whether there is Best Practice on doing this ?
e.g. package by function , package for access control purpose ??? or any other suggestion from working experience ???

Thanks in advance ~

It really depends what you have. The distinctions you described work. If the packages are large, you'd want to divide them further by function.
