    Hi,

    one reason might be that you want to group two packages under one package because they belong together and you want to show that there are dependencies between these two packages.

    Example:

    Printers

    |

    -


    HP

    |

    -


    Epson

    cheers

    Hello Lakshmi

    The SAP" target="_blank">http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw2004s/helpdata/en/fd/f39de8ae6f11d596c000a0c94260a5/content.htm">SAP Online Help says the following to this topic:

    <b>Goals of the Package Concept</b>

    When SAP created the package architecture in R/3 Enterprise, its goals were:

    • To improve the structure of the software

    • To encapsulate software functions more strictly

    • To make well-defined interfaces available to all applications

    • To clarify responsibilities

    The very same goals can be applied to your own packages, either if you are a professional software supplier for SAP or a customer.

    Regards
