Extracting Tasks and Events From Sun Java System Calendar Server

There are a couple of ways to get task information for Sun Java System Calendar Server users, including:

# ./cscal -v list calid

# ./cscomponents list calid

# ./cscomponents -t task list calid

However, these commands merely return the number of tasks for the calid (user) specified.

I'm currently working on documenting an in-house way we have of providing our Sun Java System Calendar Server users with a daily summary of their Sun Java System Calendar Server events and tasks, emailed to their inbox or mobile device each weekday morning. This tech tip will show you how to create a Bourne shell script, which uses Web Calendar Access Protocol (WCAP) commands. On a daily basis, this script finds all events and tasks from users' calendars then emails them to the individual users. A cron job executes the script according to your preferences. The email that users receive resembles the following:
