        {
            Package p = new Package();
            //Add a variable, myvar, to the package variables
            // collection. The variable has a value of 5, in the myNamespace
            // namespace.
            Variable var = p.Variables.Add("myVar", false, "myNamespace", 5);
            //
            // Enter the rest of your code here.
