The AddSource method is used to add a feature class to the network dataset. Depending on the source being added to the network dataset, different properties may be specified. While turn sources require no additional parameters, edge and junction sources require a connectivity policy and group and optionally can have elevation fields defined.

Object classes, tables and non-simple feature classes, such as annotation, dimension, geometric network feature classes and feature classes already in a network dataset cannot be added to a network dataset.  After calling AddSource, the network needs to be rebuilt in order to reflect the change.
