Definitions - trouble understanding some of them

Recommended Posts

I've been reading the somewhat complete documentation on SCCM 2012, but I'm having a difficult time understanding the definition for:

Package -

Application -

Deployment Packages -


I think I have somewhat of an idea for "package" - a group of files that do not have an installation/setup routine (hence you can't run a setup.exe).

Application, from what I gather, is a group of files that do have an installation/setup route (hence you can run a setup.exe/msi).

Deployment package - I'm not even going to attempt it.


Do applications become a package, or a deployment package, at any given time?
