[cosmo-dev] Data importation into the Derby database from text

Are you talking about importing data from text files into Chandler
Server? Or are you talking about the general problem of parsing a text
file and updating a Derby database? If you want to get data into
Chandler Server, you can use one of the supported protocols: caldav,
atom, or morse code. Details of these protocols can be found at:
You would write an external program that processes the text files and
talks to a Chandler Server using a supported protocol. You could add
the data to an existing collection or create a new one. If you are
using Java, you could use a caldav client such as caldav4j
(http://chandlerproject.org/Projects/CalDAV4jHome), but you aren't
restricted to a language, just as long as you speak the protocol.
Currently there isn't an easy way to have the server do the parsing
work, although I could imagine adding a servlet that when accessed, does
the parsing work and uses the service apis to add data to a collection.
