public interface DOMLocator implements SourceLocator

Indicates the position of a node in a source DOM, intended primarily for error reporting. To use a DOMLocator, the receiver of an error must downcast the SourceLocator object returned by an exception. A Transformer may use this object for purposes other than error reporting, for instance, to indicate the source node that originated a result node.
