Using the Source Property for Input or Output

Using the Source Property for Input or Output

Typically, a component uses the
source
property to identify where it should obtain input. For example, a
GroupSerializer
can use the property to identify an occurrence that it should serialize.
It is also possible to use the property to identify where the component should store output. For example, suppose that a Parser has already created 10 occurrences of an XML element. After the occurrences have been created, a
Group
anchor assigns an attribute in one occurrence of the element. The
Group
can use the
source
property to identify the occurrence.
