Calendaring with an iPlanet server.

When links start to dry up on my blog, it can only mean one thing: I’ve got my head buried in some new project.

Currently, I’m working with the new web portal our campus launched and trying to figure out how to best use it to promote the events and programs in the residence halls. The portal uses a iPlanet (recently bought out by Sun) server to provide calendar support, and I’m trying to figure out a way to syndicate the calendar content to departmental websites.

I’ve found the Web Access Protocol, but I hate to reinvent the wheel and code from scratch. You’d think that there would be code freely available on the internet for how to interact with the calendar server, but so far I’ve found nada.
