The most advanced server side technology, Microsoft .NET Framework and Microsoft SQL, will be used to develop a dynamic web server based calendar to handle appointment and meeting scheduling. It s a new calendar in architecture and functions compared to the traditional calendars. The existing commercial calendars, such as Outlook calendar, iCal and MeetingMaker, have a common weakness: unique calendar software should be installed in the user s computer. They are all not web based calendars. Some existing web calendars, like Yahoo calendar, have very limited functions. In this proposal, a web server based calendar is proposed to overcome this weakness, i.e., no unique software is needed and with lots of very useful functions like creating an appointment, proposing a meeting, viewing the attendee s availability and the responses, accessing and even changing the calendars of other users based on the given permission. The user can access the calendar service wherever a web browser exists.
