Sun Java System Connector for Microsoft Outlook enables Outlook to be used as a desktop client with Sun Java Enterprise System. The connector is an Outlook plug-in that must be installed on the user desktop.
Connector for Microsoft Outlook queries Messaging Server for folder hierarchies and e-mail messages, then converts the information into Messaging API (MAPI) properties that Outlook can display. Similarly, Connector uses WCAP to query Calendar Server for events and tasks which are then converted into MAPI properties. With this model, Sun Java System Connector for Microsoft Outlook builds an end-user Outlook view from two separate information sources: mail from Messaging Server and calendar information from Calendar Server.
Sun Java System Connector for Microsoft Outlook is provided on the accessories CD, with its own installer.
