(Called Development Classes in pre 4.6 versions)
- SAP Standard object use Package names starting with A-S or U-X. Customer objects cannot be added to these Packages.
- Custom developed, permanent, objects use package names starting Y or Z.
- Like other repository objects, packages can belong to a prefix namespace if the relevant namespace is installed in your R/3 system. Packages begin with a namespace prefix enclosed in slashes(/). In a package of this type you can only create object that belong to the same prefix namespace.
- Package names can be up to 30 characters long.
Suggested Naming Standard
|Package Name||<Prefix><Application Area><Separator><Description>|
Z,Y or namespace
Normal customer developed objects should be prefixed with Z. Y should only be used when a object is local and will not be transported. When a namespace is involved that would be used as a prefix. i.e. "/Prefix/FIDEV"
|Application Area||FI,PP.MM etc.
Functional Application Area, Note it is typical to use SAP's Application Areas but others work as well.
|Seperator||"_" use an underscore|
