ESRI Feature Class object.
FeatureClass is a non-creatable object. References to non-creatable objects must be obtained through other objects.

A FeatureClass is an ObjectClass whose objects are features, that is, a feature class is a collection of spatial entities, modeled as objects with properties and behavior. All of the features in a feature class share the same attribute schema (they have the same set of named fields). The row objects handed out by a feature class support the IRow, IObject, and IFeature interfaces.
A feature class has a distinguished field of type Geometry, referred to as the shape field. The shape field stores the geometry (referred to as the shape property) for the features in the FeatureClass.
