At the Forge - Sunbird and iCalendar
Our investigation of hybrid desktop-Web applications has begun with an examination of the iCalendar/vCalendar file format, using the Mozilla standalone Sunbird application. We were able to create different types of events and then move the resulting iCalendar file from our local machine to a remote server.
However, our calendar is static, meaning that someone has to modify it by hand or by uploading a calendar file each time it changes. In my next column, we will learn how to create iCalendar files dynamically, using a Web/database application. We then will look at different ways in which calendars created on one computer can be written to a server and shared with other people.
