SSIS 2012 Parameters

I am just starting to convert some of our SSIS packages over to SSIS 2012 and I was hoping to take advantage of the parameters that are in SSIS 2012.  However I cannot find how to get BIDS Helper to generate the parameters.  The XML validates and everything runs fine, but when I look in the generated SSIS Package it does not contain any parameters.

To try to generate the parameters I am placing the following XML instead of the 'Package' node:

<Parameters

>

<Parameter Name="TestParm" DataType="String"></Parameter>

</Parameters>

As I mentioned, when I click 'Generate SSIS Packages' it generates the SSIS package fine, but the SSIS package does not contain the parameter.

Am I doing something wrong or is this just not available?

Thank You
