Calendaring Interoperability Test Report


There seem to be few bright notes to report on the computing front these days, but here’s one:

The results from last month’s Calconnect Interoperability testing here in Seattle are now available at

There were two different CalDAV servers (Oracle and Isamet) and three CalDAV clients (Mozilla and two from Isamet) participating in the interop.

This marks the first time that we’ve seen actual multi-vendor client/server calendaring interoperability demonstrated – that’s a BIG DEAL!

CalConnect membership now includes Oracle, Novell, Isamet, Yahoo!, MeetingMaker, Symbian and a bunch of academic institutions including Washington, MIT, UC Berkeley, Wisconsin, and Duke. IBM and others have participated in the meetings.

You’ll note that the big missing presence here is Microsoft. We’re all still hopefull that Microsoft will choose to participate in this important interoperability work – if you know influential people there, here’s a chance to plead.
