Sun Java System Calendar Server 6.3 WCAP Developer's Guide

Calendar Server WCAP Attendee Overview

Each attendee entry can contain several sub-parameters, such as invitation participation status, whether attendance is required or not, whether the attendee is a group or not, and so forth. All such parameters are encapsulated in a syntax very similar to the ATTENDEE property defined in the iCalendar Specification (RFC 2445). Reading the entire document is recommended in order to have the necessary background information to understand the WCAP attendee syntax. Some differences exist, such as, WCAP uses a different delimiter, ^, to set apart these parameters. (However, WCAP uses the standard iCalendar semicolon delimiter for separating attendees.)

For example, where iCalendar would have the following:


PARSTAT=ACCEPTED;RSVP=TRUE:mailto:abc@xyz.com

WCAP would format it this way:


PARSTAT=ACCEPTED^RSVP=TRUE^mailto:abc@xyz.com
