    Java Objects come in so called packages. It's a way of organizing commands into groups.

    For instance there's the "java.math" package which contains helper objects to calculate stuff.

    The naming usually follows some conventions. Typically, the first word indicates the language, similar to the domain ending with websites. org means it's international and made by an organization.

    Eclipse is an IDE (Integrated Development Environment) used to write Java programs.

    The rest is the hierarchy.

    jst means Java Standard Tools

    jee means Java Enterprise Edition

    server means the code is related to operating a server

    Here's another example:

    Say I, Chris, write a game called "mario".

    Now whenever I write code that has to do with the game's main engine, I'd put it into the package called com.chris.mario.engine

    The idea is that the naming convention ensures worldwide uniqueness.
