The Sun Java System Connector desktop deployment toolkit consists of the following components:
Deployment Configuration Program allows system administrators to create bundled, customized installation packages for end users. These packages can then install and configure Connector for Microsoft Outlook and, if appropriate, convert data from Microsoft Exchange local stores.
Setup Wizard allows end users to install the Connector for Microsoft Outlook plug-in, configure its operations and features based on the administrator's settings, and convert existing Outlook data files (.pst files) associated with Exchange into a form that Connector for Microsoft Outlook can use. (The setup wizard is one part of the bundled end-user installation package created by the deployment configuration program.)
Install kit (MSI) is the installation utility for the software that facilitates ongoing, permanent communications between Microsoft Outlook features and the Sun Java Enterprise System servers. This is supplied as part of the installation package.
Special Kits for using Microsoft System Management Services (SMS) to install the Connector for Microsoft Outlook support the “push” functionality of Microsoft's SMS to let a system administrator distribute and install the desktop components to user desktops with minimal or no user involvement.
In addition to the above-listed components of the deployment toolkit, the Microsoft installation program for Web Publishing Wizard (WPW) (available from other vendors) may be necessary for your users to install the Sun Java System Connector for Microsoft Outlook.
Microsoft's WPW is a tool used to generate HTML-coded documents, typically in the form of web pages to be viewed in a web browser. But WPW can also be used to “publish” information for other purposes—to create documents containing certain types of data and upload the documents to locations where other applications can find them and extract the pertinent data. Connector for Microsoft Outlook uses WPW this way to facilitate the transfer of users' free/busy data between Outlook and the Sun Java Enterprise System servers, and WPW therefore is a necessary intermediary and a required component of every user's installation.
The WPW, however, is not included in the deployment toolkit package because it is a Microsoft product, so you must obtain the Web Publishing Wizard from Microsoft. The installation program for Microsoft’s WPW is available as a free download from http://www.microsoft.com.
