JAVA API: how to retrieve owner name of repository workspace

Oscar Picasso (311420) | asked Jan 24 '14, 11:20 a.m.

I have an IWorkspaceConnection that represents a repository workspace. How to get its owner name?

I have tried to cast workspaceConnection.getOwner() to IContributor but I get a class cast exception.
I also tried workspaceConnection.getOwner().getAdapter(IContributor.class) but the result is null.

IContributor represents the complete object of a user. The #getOwner() call returns a handle to the object. It either returns a ITeamAreaHandle or IContributorHandle.
