Abstract. This document defines extensions to the Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) protocol to specify a standard way of accessing. Calendaring Extensions to WebDAV, or CalDAV, is an Internet standard allowing a client to access scheduling information on a remote.

The resourcetype tells us what type of object we’re getting back. What we need from this url, is their ‘calendar home’. In this case it may be needed to do a full-sync again. Clients may add non-standard properties to iCalendar objects.

It allows multiple client access to the same acldav thus allowing cooperative planning and information sharing. The access protocol is defined by RFC I strongly recommend always retaining the iCalendar the server sent to you.
The best user interface would be to just have to ask for three items:. One implication is that ideally the user should not be bothered by a ‘Synchronize Now! The displayname is a human-readable string for the calendarname, the ctag was already covered in an earlier section.
