Quick start tutorial: Creating a Martini package
Martini groups related components together using Martini packages. Packages let you easily export, import, enable, and disable groups of application functionality with a few simple clicks. Martini packages are a collection of services, endpoints, web pages, Solr cores, APIs, and other resources that can be used by your applications. They keep things organised by grouping related logical units together.
