PluginBaseInputDefinition Class

The InputDefinition class is a class for defining the plug-in dependency over the input (points or identifiers). The user implemented method DefineInput() of the PluginBase interface should return an array list of input definition instances. This defines the points and identifiers the plug-in will receive as input when the Run() method is called.
