Have doubts with some terms in GlobalPlatform 2.1.1.

I have some doubts about some terms in GlobalPlatform 2.1.1.

Here is some definition from GP2.1.1.
Executable Load File:
Actual on-card container of one or more application's executable code
(Executable Modules). It may reside in Immutable Persistent Memory or
may be created in Mutable Persistent Memory as the resulting image of a
Load File Data Block

Executable Module:
Contains the on-card executable code of a single application present within
an Executable Load File

Load File:
A file transferred to a GlobalPlatform card that contains a Load File Data
Block and possibly one or more DAP Blocks

Load File Data Block:
Part of the Load File that contains one or more application(s) and libraries
or support information for the application(s) as required by the specific

Which one refer to cap file? Which one refer to packages? Which one is for applet's codes inside a package?
These may be very primary questions, but please help me understand these. Thanks

Consider these as follows:
Executable Load File - .cap files contains class extend Applet
Executable Module - the class extend Applet
Load File Data Block - components in .cap files
