public class Location
extends java.lang.Object

Class that models an arbitrary location in a resource.

For example, a source location might be 'The bean defined on line 76 of beans.properties has an invalid Class'; another source might be the actual DOM Element from a parsed XML Document; or the source object might simply be null.
