Following are the advantages of using packages in Java: 

  • The package creates a new namespace so there won't be anname conflicts with names in other packages. 

  • Programmers can define their own packages to bundle a group of classes/interfaces, etc. 

  • Packages helps to provide access control 

  • Comparatively easily to locate the related classes
