Hi Robert,

the code to get the categories of a given project are looks as below:
	/**
	 * Print the Categories for a given Project Area
	 * 
	 * @param teamRepository
	 * @param projectArea
	 * @param monitor
	 * @throws TeamRepositoryException
	 */
	private static void printProjectAreaCategories(ITeamRepository teamRepository,
			IProjectArea projectArea, IProgressMonitor monitor) throws TeamRepositoryException {
		IWorkItemClient workItemClient = (IWorkItemClient) teamRepository.getClientLibrary(IWorkItemClient.class);
		List categories = workItemClient.findCategories(projectArea, ICategory.FULL_PROFILE, monitor);
		System.out.println("Categories of Project Area:");
		for (ICategory iCategory : categories) {
			System.out.println("\tID:" + iCategory.getCategoryId() + "\tName" + iCategory.getName()); 
		}	
	}

If you have an arbitrary process area (project area/team area) this gives you the associated categories, as far as I can tell.
	/**
	 * Print the Categories for a given Process Area
	 * 
	 * @param teamRepository
	 * @param processArea
	 * @param monitor
	 * @throws TeamRepositoryException
	 */
	private static void printProcessAreaCategories(ITeamRepository teamRepository,
			IProcessArea processArea, IProgressMonitor monitor) throws TeamRepositoryException {
		IWorkItemClient workItemClient = (IWorkItemClient) teamRepository.getClientLibrary(IWorkItemClient.class);
		List categories = workItemClient.findCategoriesOfProcessArea(processArea, ICategory.FULL_PROFILE, monitor);
		System.out.println("Categories of Process Area:");
		for (ICategory iCategory : categories) {
			System.out.println("\tID:" + iCategory.getCategoryId() + "\tName" + iCategory.getName()); 
		}	
	}
