Please don't paste fake stuff, just capture your exact sqlplus session and paste it (between code tags).

Your example doesn't work...the table doesn't even create.

And don't create a package with the name of package...

Also, the more common way of doing what you are doing would be to create a function that would return the value.

Or, do the insert inside plsql:

MYDBA@orcl > start test
MYDBA@orcl >
MYDBA@orcl > CREATE OR REPLACE PACKAGE mypack
  2  IS
  3          feature CONSTANT PLS_INTEGER := 1;
  4  END;
  5  /

Package created.

MYDBA@orcl > show errors
No errors.
MYDBA@orcl >
MYDBA@orcl > create table test1
  2  (
  3          column1 number
  4  );

Table created.

MYDBA@orcl >
MYDBA@orcl > insert into test1 values (mypack.feature);
insert into test1 values (mypack.feature)
                          *
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-06553: PLS-221: 'FEATURE' is not a procedure or is undefined


MYDBA@orcl >
MYDBA@orcl > begin
  2          insert into test1 values (mypack.feature);
  3          commit;
  4  end;
  5  /

PL/SQL procedure successfully completed.

MYDBA@orcl >
MYDBA@orcl > select * from test1;

   COLUMN1
----------
         1

1 row selected.

MYDBA@orcl >
MYDBA@orcl > drop package mypack;

Package dropped.

MYDBA@orcl > drop table test1;

Table dropped.

MYDBA@orcl >
MYDBA@orcl > set echo off
