The following code example shows how to retrieve the package roles, assuming the variables have been set to reflect your specific server name, package path, and roles.

string readerRole = null;
string writerRole = null;
app.GetPackageRoles(myServerName, packagePath, out readerRole, out writerRole);
Dim readerRole As String =  Nothing 
Dim writerRole As String =  Nothing 
app.GetPackageRoles(myServerName, packagePath, readerRole, writerRole)
