Inquiry fields and functions

The size of an array in Java can be had from its length field. Similarly, in HPJava, information like data owner group and distributed dimensions can be accessed from the following fields,

Group group;   //data owner group
Range range[]; //dimension array
Further inquiry functions on Range yield values such as extents and distribution formats.
