Creating a package

We are still not in a position to do any actual development work. In order to do so, we need to create a package. This object is once again a container, only it is not used for transportation purposes. A package serves just to group objects. For example, you might create one package for your sales reporting objects, and another one for your HR reporting developments. Packages are more for your use than for SAP HANA's.

Note

You can use objects from one package in developments belonging to another package (if you have the appropriate authorizations). Be careful if you do this however, as you'll need to transport (using the delivery units) both packages together in order for everything to work correctly.
