Hi!

Thank you for your quick response. This package seems to be a standalone package. Can I find out if you have done any simple example to sent vCalendar using this with JSP into Exchange/outlook mail box?

Thank you.

you'll need to create your vcal object and send it as an attachment (using JavaMail)

Grab the source from the above package and extract the code it uses to create vcal files.

Hi. I have had a look, but I really can't figure out where the vcal object is created. I am happy to increase the points, if you could help me in this topic.

There are very few vCal implementation in Java when I search on google. However, it seems like the vbscript has got more discussion in this topic. Is Java the wrong tech to implement this type of thing?

Have a look at the TerminMemory class.
It has an export_vCalendar() method.
you might want to have a look this this one and ask for the code:
