HI

How to Synch WindowsLive Contact, Calendar & notes with Java application?

I have to write a application so that device could connect ---> Java application --> WindowLive to synch Contact, Calendar & notes with Java application.

WindowsLive is using ActiveSync. Is there any XML Schema to develop Java application?

Please throw me some light

Thank you

Welcome to the JavaRanch, Madha!

As I understand it, Microsoft has mucked around with the ActiveSync protocols several times, resulting in incompatibilities. In other words, typical Microsoft.

You may be able to access Windows Live directly using the vCal and vCard data formats. Most PDAs and many websites support them. That basically means writing your own sync protocol.

Although actually, in most cases, rather than making only a single app sync, you'd sync the entire device so that the data would go into the device's master database. For Windows devices, that would mean using an OS-level sync application.

You might find what you need in JSR 172. It's the web services api optional package.
