What is the Oracle term for an sql catalog?

I am using java's interface DatabaseMetaData with a jdbc driver to an oracle database.

The interface uses the term catalog as one of the coordinates for the database subsets. For example, in querying for procedures (getProcedures method).

I'm not sure what does the term catalog stand for, especially considering the Oracle database.

After brief playing with the interface, I see that I can pass package names for the catalog argument to yield its members.

Does it mean that in Oracle catalog == package? The interface does define getCatalogTerm method, but in my case it returns an empty string.
