There is so much to say about packages, that I wanted to continue on to some more of the interesting features. I realized after I finished the last article that this would really just be a series regurgitating the documentation, so I actually went and checked the documentation to see how much is there. That is when I realized there is almost nothing about building packages in the docs. There is a single long page with almost no useful details in it, so hopefully this series will be a good resource for others. If you see some details in a documentation page missing please be sure to use the Submit Comment button, as there really is a person at the other end of that link. (A busy person usually, but they do often respond).
In the first article Let's talk some more about Packages in Designer 4 - Part 1 I talked about versioning, base packages, building prompts, interesting linkages, GCV and filter extensions.
In the second article Let's talk some more about Packages in Designer 4 - Part 2 I talked about more details in the nitty gritty about packages like localization, dependencies and ordering, and finally about the package catalog and what is stored there.
In the third article Let's talk some more about Packages in Designer 4 - Part 3 I discussed how the process of adding a driver changes with the new package model.
In the fourth article Let's talk some more about Packages in Designer 4 - Part 4 I discussed options about building packages and some of the states that a package might go through in terms of usage, and in terms of recommended development paths.
In the fifth article Let's talk some more about Packages in Designer 4 - Part 5 I started looking at the various resource types that can be part of a package, and how they differ from their standard representation in a driver which would include the various new features added to support the package infrastructure. I was able to cover Global Configuration objects and Filter extensions.
In this article I would like to continue with objects that we can use in Packages.
