How to load my OutLook calendar on Web

Hi guys,

I'm trying to write a program to load my Microsoft Outlook calendar on my web page. Can someone help point me to the direction on how this can be achieved?

Many thanks!

The first step would be to export all contacts to a file. Then you can write an application (or maybe a servlet) that parses the file and creates an HTML page. Does this answer your question (it was a bit short on details)?

No this does not answer my question. I'm trying to publish my outlook calendar on the web. It needs to be up-to-date where ever I access my outlook mail. I'm not sure how the MS Exchange Server works.

Also, I need my friends/clients to be able to see my up-to-date calendar on my website. That way, they can time with me.

I would appreciate any leads or insight.

If there is a solution for this, I doubt it will involve Java or Open Source in any way. I can get to my (work) MS Exchange calendar via my company's web site because they have Outlook Web Access installed on the server, for example.

Is anyone familiar with WebDav and how to use it to connect to the MS exchange server calendar?

WebDAV is generally used to access files remotely, not email or calendars. Have you seen something that indicates it might be usable with Exchange? That would need to have a very non-standard client.

Paul mentioned Outlook Web Access, which sort of does what you describe (and it's part of Exchange). Normally, OWA is geared towards single users (it requires you to log in), but there may be something that allows you to publish your calendar so that others can see it. Your Exchange admin might know more about this.
