Map a package to a specific namespace.


[Map.w]    Package_Name=Database


Caché adds entries to the CPF file automatically when you map a package to a specific namespace w using the Management Portal (see the instructions below). The entries appear in a section called [Map.w] where w is the namespace to which the package is being mapped.

Each entry provides a package database location.

Classes in the specified package become available in the w namespace.
