    public class ModelGroupParticle
    extends Particle
    A reference within the content model of a complex type to a Model Group Definition. Corresponds to a non-top-level xs:group element in a schema document, that is, an xs:group element with a ref attribute.

    There is no direct equivalent of a ModelGroupParticle in the W3C schema component model, because in that model the structure of a complex type is always fully expanded: that is, any group references are replaced by the content of the group they refer to. This model retains group references to allow late binding and redefinition. However, methods are provided on the ModelGroup class to give a view of the content model in which the group references disappear.
