Understanding packaging instruction classes
Packager instruction classes handle packaging ICs as well as reduced runtime images. These classes form a class hierarchy under the class EpAbstractPackagingInstructions. Packaging instruction classes are generated automatically when saved from the packager UI. Each class is saved with methods that allows the exact characteristics of the packager instructions to be re-created. Assuming a constant set of Application versions that compose an application, packager instruction classes guarantee that the output image from the packaging process can easily be re-created. The protocol that is of most concern to you are the class methods on EpAbstractPackagingInstructions in the category EP-API (Modifiable). This is the protocol that is overwritten by the packager on subclasses of EpAbstractPackagingInstructions, based on input from the packager UI.
