public interface ILcdDataSource

General representation of a data source. It contains the information that is needed to describe a source, such as a file path or a service connection. It should not contain any logic, making it for example possible to serialize data sources. ILcdDataSource objects can be used as argument in the ILcdModelDecoder.decodeSource(ILcdDataSource) method.

Implementing classes should make sure that instances of this class that describe the same data source(s), are equal to one another.
