I need to modify an existing web application (Java servlet). It would make the modification (and my life) a lot easier if I can access, from the servlet, information stored in the contacts folder/address book of  Exchange. Is there a way to do this?

Can you be more specific?  Are you trying to write a front end that will access Active Directory snd make changes to some Exchange properties?

LDAP comes to mind..

Geeting Addresbook information from Exchange is easy, lookup the ADSI SDK on the MS website. this will explain how to get this info, because you need to get it from AD, not Exchange.

Contact folders will be a bit more difficult. If you store all contacts in AD, this should be as easy as getting to the addressbook. If you need to access contacts from Outlook, then you will probably not be able to script this easily.

The COM library (cdo.dll) exposes functionalities to access Exchange folders, including the contacts folder. COM libraries are readily acessible through VB and/or VBScript. All you need to do is add references to these libraries. Accessing them from Java, however, is a different story. I believe you need an interoperability tool like a Java-to-COM bridge to do this.
