"Package diagram is UML structure diagram which shows packages and dependencies between the packages.
Model diagrams allow to show different views of a system, for example, as multi-layered (aka multi-tiered) application - multi-layered application model.
The following nodes and edges are typically drawn in a package diagram: package, packageable element, dependency, element import, package import, package merge." [uml-diagrams.org/package-diagrams.html]

"A very important concept in object-oriented design, inheritance, refers to the ability of one class (child class) to inherit the identical functionality of another class (super class), and then add new functionality of its own. (In a very non-technical sense, imagine that I inherited my mother's general musical abilities, but in my family I'm the only one who plays electric guitar.) To model inheritance on a class diagram, a solid line is drawn from the child class (the class inheriting the behavior) with a closed, unfilled arrowhead (or triangle) pointing to the super class. Consider types of bank accounts: Figure 4 shows how both CheckingAccount and SavingsAccount classes inherit from the BankAccount class.
Figure 4: Inheritance is indicated by a solid line with a closed, unfilled arrowhead pointing at the super class." [ibm.com/developerworks/rational/library/content/RationalEdge/sep04/bell/index.html]

"A package diagram in the Unified Modeling Language depicts the dependencies between the packages that make up a model.
In addition to the standard UML Dependency relationship, there are two special types of dependencies defined between packages:
* package import,
* package merge.
Elements.
1. Package: a general purpose mechanism for organizing model elements & diagrams into groups. It provides an encapsulated namespace within which all the names must be unique. It is used to group semantically related elements. It is a namespace as well as an element that can be contained in other packages' namespaces.
2. Class: a representation of an object that reflects its structure and behavior within the system. It is a template from which running instances are created. Classes usually describe the logical structure of the system.
3. Interface: a specification of behavior. An implementation class must be written to support the behavior of an interface class.
4. Object: an instance of a class. It is often used in analysis to represent an artifact or other item.
5. Table: a stereotyped class." [Package diagram. Wikipedia]

(1) Package: It is a general purpose mechanism for organizing model elements & diagrams into groups. It provides an encapsulated namespace within which all the names must be unique. It is used to group semantically related elements. It is a namespace as well as an element that can be contained in other package's namespaces.
(2) Class: It is a representation of objects, that reflects their structure and behavior within the system. It is a template from which actually running instances are created. Classes usually describe logical structure of system.
(3) Interface: It is a specification of behavior. Implementing classes of an interface class are required to support the behavior.
(4) Object: It is an instance of class. It is often used in analysis to represent numerous artifacts and items that exist.
(5) Table: It is a stereotyped class." [Package diagram. Wikipedia]

UML Diagram

The accepted open standard that is used in software engineering and system design, when modeling object-oriented systems and business processes is known as Unified Modeling Language (UML). UML was created for definition, visualization, design and documentation software systems. It isn't a programming language, but on the base of UML model can be generated code. UML uses generic set of graphic notations for creation an abstract model of the system called UML-model. The UML notation lets visually represent requirements, subsystems, structural and behavioral patterns, logical and physical elements, etc. UML defines 13 types of diagrams: Class (Package), Use Case, Sequence, Object, Collaboration, Component, Timing, Interaction Overview, State Machine, Composite Structure, Activity, and Deployment. All these types of UML Diagrams can be fast and easy created with powerful ConceptDraw PRO software extended with special Rapid UML solution from Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

UML Class Diagram Notation

When it comes to system construction, a class diagram is the most widely used diagram. UML Class Diagrams is a type of static structure diagram that is used for general conceptual modeling of the systematics of the application. Such a diagram would illustrate the object-oriented view of a system . The object orientation of a system is indicated by a class diagram. It describes the structure of a system by showing the general issues,classes of a system, attributes, operations, interfaces, inheritance, and the relationships between them. Read more

UML Tool & UML Diagram Examples

The Unified Modeling Language (abbr. UML) is a general-purpose modeling language widely used in the field of software development, software engineering, education, science, industry, business. In 1997 the UML was approved as a standard by the OMG (Object Management Group) and in 2005 was published as ISO standard by the International Organization for Standardization. UML is widely and succesfully applied for optimization the process of software systems development and business systems analysis. There are used 14 types of UML diagrams, 7 from them depict structural information, another 7 types represent different types of behavior and aspects of interactions. Design of any automated process is easy with ConceptDraw PRO and unique Rapid UML solution from the Software Development area, which provides numerous UML examples, templates and vector stencils libraries for drawing all types of UML 1.x and UML 2.x diagrams. Use of predesigned UML diagram examples and templates lets you quickly start drawing your own UML diagrams in ConceptDraw PRO software. Read more
