In the contrib/ area of the Grouper distribution there are some sample
(and somewhat dodgy) programs that can either be used to load groups,
subjects and memberships or else to serve as examples of how to do so
with the API.

I say "dodgy" as they aren't necessarily good example programs. The
programs generally try to do to much and they don't do anything well.
I should try to replace those with something, anything better and more

I believe the implementation guide (which ships with Grouper) also
talks about using the contrib/ code to populate your Groups Registry
for testing.

There are no LDAP connectors of any sort yet. I haven't had a chance
to write one yet and I'm somewhat hoping that someone will beat me to
it and contribute it back.

I have the beginnings of a web service - unfortunately most of that
work was on the hard drive of a laptop that died last week.
