hi,
The Plan consists of no . of packages.
One of the purposes of Package is to avail binding of programs on remote systems. that means u can bind the programs in one package at one system and no of packages from diff. systems can be included in single Plan.

Only Plan is executable .

Anybody Correct me if i am wrong !

Prashant.

Hi ..
Package is in executable form but you can't execute it without binding to a plan .Plan is just a collection of the packages which contains pointer to the various packages it bound to .
