What is package?
- Package objects contain version information about the implementation and specification of a Java package.
- This versioning information is retrieved and made available by the Class Loader instance that loaded the class(es).
- Typically, it is stored in the manifest that is distributed with the classes.
- The set of classes that make up the package may implement a particular specification and if so the specification title, version number, and vendor strings identify that specification.
- Sometimes we need to separate our java classes according to their functionality.
- Keeping various java classes in different package name make the project more understandable for anyone.
What is Src folder?
- "Src" is the folder where the project's source files are located.
- For example, if you are working on a Java project, src folder and its sub folders would hold the .java files.
- "Bin" folder is usually where the compiled files are copied to.
