That looks like a big project, eh?
We're looking around because Oracle has announced that Oracle Calendar
(formerly Steltor Calendar (formerly CS&T Calendar (formerly Netscape
Calendar (formerly OEM'd from CS&T's predecessor)))) will cease to
exist as a standalone application in 2004. Brandeis has been a happy
...Calendar user for 5 years. The rest of Oracle's communication
software, only a mother could love (Oracle Corporation appears to be
the only customer for Oracle Mail Server, Oracle Voicemail, etc.).
dotlrn does personal and public calendaring reasonably well. It does
not do resource or group scheduling at all (yes you can do groups, but
you can't "invite" someone to a meeting in the sense of MeetingMaker,
Oracle Calendar, Exchange/Outlook, or Ximian Evolution).
Is anyone [else] interested in the massive undertaking of adding such
features to dotlrn calendar or some other module?
University of Washington does have a history of shooting for the moon
and succeeding, but we're small and we'd rather not get into another
platform when we already have ACS.
Any other recommendations for something that could potentially replace
*both* Oracle Calendar (think Exchange/Outlook), which does
group/personal calendaring only, and the ACS 3.x-based public-only
calendar we've got on my.brandeis.edu?
