GroupServer has many objects, interfaces, and components. This page serves as an incomplete list and quick reference of the data structures of GroupServer. In many cases, a brief description of the structure's purpose and listing of its properties/methods is provided. In general, the EGG-INFO/PKG-INFO of the structure's egg will provide much more detail, and will probably be more current. And of course, there's the code itself.

Groups, Group, and GroupMembers
