Though I am not quite ready to start work on this, I had been thinking about
a good way to increase the use and usefulness of the Chandler software,
namely to extend its ability to be used from Mobile Phones, in particular
the Microsoft Windows Mobile Platform. I have written a couple of programs
already for the Windows Mobile device and am pretty familiar with how it
I have a couple of general questions about Chandler.
First: Does chandler provide a full SOAP mechanism? I have found the
Windows Mobile is pretty good with SOAP messaging.
Second: If it does, is there an API Document available for how this
Third: Is this thought process (that is, creating a mobile client)
interesting to anyone aside from myself?
I am not a person who wants to pay through the nose for an Exchange server.
Even so, I am essentially forced into it because my Mobile Platform of
Choice uses it to keep track of my calendar, contacts, and email. I would
assume I am not the only person on the planet with this dilemma.
Furthermore, since this is J2EE, I would imagine I could easily put this on
my hosted web server and run it myself, rather than having to depend on some
other hosting company running Exchange for me.
I will probably be installing and testing out a chandler instance at the end
of the week on my Solaris box at home. I again have a few other things I am
working on (outside of my normal job functions) so it may be a bit till I
can get something interesting out there, but I am excited to think that
maybe I can contribute something useful to this already exciting project.
Anyone who can shed light on this I would appreciate it,
