The package in java programming language
is a keyword that is used to define a package that includes the java classes. Keywords
are basically reserved words which have specific meaning relevant to a compiler.
Packages in java are used to avoid naming of classes.

must be followed by a developer whenever defining a package.
public class MyClass
Note: Here are some points that must
be considered while declaring and defining a package.
In java programming language while
defining a package then the package statement, must be the first non-comment
statement in Java source file. For example the above syntax have a
fully-qualified class name of the MyClass i.e com.roseindia.MyClass.

the default package if the Java source file does not include a package
Classes in the default package may not
be referenced from classes in non−default packages.
