    In 3.0, the debug platform provides source lookup facilities that should be used in place of the Java source lookup support provided in 2.0. The new facilities provide a source lookup director that coordinates source lookup among a set of participants, searching a set of source containers. See the following packages: org.eclipse.debug.core.sourcelookup and org.eclipse.debug.core.sourcelookup.containers. This interface has been replaced by org.eclipse.debug.core.sourcelookup.ISourceContainer.
    A repository of source code. A source location is capable of retrieving source elements.

    For example, a source location could be a project, zip/archive file, or a directory in the file system.

    This interface is may be implemented by clients.

    Since:
    2.0
