In objectiF RPM, a package is a folder that can contain a wide variety of elements and which you use to structure the entire project content.  

Create packages

You can create, import, or model packages manually in a package diagram. You can recognize a package in the system by these icons:

Standard icon for packages
Standard icon for packages of type Systemcontext
Standard icon for packages of type Document

When you create new packages, you can use the subordinate stereotypes, such as Requirements or TestCases, to indicate which elements are to be created in a package. If, for example, you only want requirements to be created in one package and test cases only in another, create one Requirements package and another TestCases package. 


The stereotype of packages is <<Package>>. You need the stereotype when you create document templates, queries, forms, or search for a package in the tool. But also when creating new patterns, you use the stereotypes to determine for which element types the pattern is to be offered later.

In the Stereotypes window, you will find the Stereotypes Package at the top level under P. Below this, further substereotypes have been created, which you can extend or adapt by user-defined properties. Properties do not have to be defined separately for each sub-stereotype, since the properties are inherited from the main stereotype.
