The paper examines the problem of finding a group of objects that are involved in a certain transitive relation. It is especially important when a group of related objects has to be identified, for example for monitoring. The article defines static and dynamic binding relations between objects in a distributed object-oriented system. It also presents an architecture for catching these relations since current operating systems do not support such mechanisms. In the paper the algorithm for finding bindings of a given object is described.
