Hi Chase,

you can read all channels of a ContentDefinition with the method
getAllSubChannelsOfRootChannel and then iterate over these channels.

to get all channels of a cd you may use getChannels or
getSelectedChannels (this cuts off the root channel)

the master module is part of opencms and the source can be downloaded
from opencms.org.
