I just looked at vcard4j - from what I can tell it's not related to  

Since iCal4j does a lot of the hard work of parsing this type of file  
and since iCal4j is relatively well supported, would it be feasible/ 
practical to extend ical4j to deal with the vcards as well? Also  
might be worthwhile to see if the ical4j developers are already doing  
work in this direction or planning on it.

These map to WebDAV properties defined in the CalDAV spec. Check out
