This class can encapsulate several constants in the same class.

It provides a base class that can store constant values in class variable.

Applications should extend this class to allow retrieving all constants defined in an class as an array.

Many classes need to define constant values, so they can have meaningful names for the values that they need to use.

This package makes that task easier by providing a base class that assigns values to constants from an array defined in a sub-class that needs to use those constants.
