Hi *,
I'm writing an interface upon the Grouper Java Objects (namely the VOOT connector).
Within this interface I need, at some point, to retrieve the Membership object of a Subject within a specific Group.
For this purpose, I've so far user the following snippet of code:
Membership membership = MembershipFinder.findImmediateMembership(grouperSession, theGroup, theSubject, false);

This works perfectly right, but only retrieves direct membership (as the method name suggest really strongly).
I was wondering how I could retrieve direct and indirect membership.
I suppose I have to use the MembershipFinder.findEffectiveMemberships method... but it has some parameters which makes it not completely clear to me how I could achieve my goal...

Has someone already solved a similar problem (the UI solves this problem, for instance) and is able to share a snippet of code to do obtain the membership of a user to a group (direct or indirect)?

Thank you very much!
