Im not sure I understand why you would use this hook and not
membershipPostCommitInsert and membershipPostCommitDelete?

Those would save me trouble, thanks. I thought I would do something else with the set of memberships, but that turned out to not be true.

Also, if notifications / change log existed in 2.4, you would use that right?

It is very likely.

This hook notifies a udp listener of membership changes. The listener
then takes action, in this case, updating an LDAP database.

I registered two hooks.


I could not easily predict when the hooks would fire, so it is their
to filter the event before notifying. Please forgive this crude code
fragment, but I think it illustrates what I am doing:

Set memberships = postCommitBeanThread.getMembershipEffectiveSaves();
Iterator memberator = memberships.iterator();
while (memberator.hasNext()) {
Membership membership = (Membership);
String listName = membership.getListName();
if (!listName.equals("members")) {; continue; }
// Proceed to process this event...

This works well so far.
