How to Create custom geocoder

Discussion created by brettlawson on May 23, 2012
I have seen references in older help documentation that state "If you want to develop a custom address locator, create a subclass of the AddressLocator class", but I am unable to find any documentation on this.  What I want to accomplish is to create a custom geocoder that I can perform my own magic behind the scene, but have it behave like the ESRI Address locator.  Does anybody have any ideas on how to accomplish this?
