212. Default Package

Classes in Java need to be created under any packages. In case, if we don't provide any package name while creating a Class, Java automatically creates the Class under a package called 'Default Package'.

Lets create a Class in a Java Project without creating a Package prior to it and find out what Java does.

Lets implement on Eclipse IDE -

1. Launch Eclipse IDE , Create a new Java Project 'Project 40' and observe that no packages are displayed before creating Class as shown below -

2. Now create a Class 'ClassA' without creating a package prior to it, Java creates the Class under the default package as shown below -

 Hence Java automatically creates the package 'default package' when Class is created without creating any package.

Creating Hierarchy of Packages will be explained in the next post.
