Subject Re: [Studio] Extend Functionality Question
Date Wed, 03 Oct 2007 22:22:54 GMT
Hi Brian,

I don't recommend to use Studio for this task. Studio is a GUI tool.

I think it is easyer to write a script or a small program. To write the
group membership in AD you could use JLDAP or (my recommendation) JNDI.
I think it would be a program with less than 100 LOC.
