/**
 * Encapsulate the location of a ValidationEvent.
 *
 * <p>
 * The <tt>ValidationEventLocator</tt> indicates where the <tt>ValidationEvent

 * validation that was being performed when the error or warning was detected.  
 * For example, on-demand validation would produce locators that contained 
 * references to objects in the Java content tree while unmarshal-time 
 * validation would produce locators containing information appropriate to the 
 * source of the XML data (file, url, Node, etc).
