Method Detail


String listGroupMembers(String groupName,
                        String memberUserOrGroupNameWildcard,
                        int maximumToReturn)
                        throws NotFoundException,
Searches within a group for user and group (member) names that match a pattern. Returns a cursor (string). You can use methods from (which this MBean extends) to iterate through the returned list.

This method does not sort the results or distinguish user and group names. You can use the groupExists method to determine whether a name refers to an existing group.

groupName - - The existing group within which this method searches for members.
memberUserOrGroupNameWildcard - - The pattern for which this method searches The pattern can end with an * (asterisk) as a wildcard, which matches any string of characters. The search is not case-sensitive. ' *

For example, a pattern of abc matches exactly one name that contains only abc, a pattern of ab* matches all user and group names that start with ab, and a pattern of * matches all user and group names.

maximumToReturn - - The maximum number of user and group names that this method returns. If there are more matches than this maximum, then the returned results are arbitrary because this method does not sort results. If this parameter is set to 0, all results are returned.
