Creating Exchange Items with ColdFusion

Recently, I was working on the tools that Wharton Computing uses to write from ColdFusion to our Exchange servers. I was getting them ready to be installed centrally on our development servers to open up this functionality to the rest of the developers here. I remembered that back in December Ben Forta posted on his blog about Exchange Integration with ColdFusion, and received a bit of interest in it. It hit me that maybe more people might find use for what I have been working on.

So, I componentized the code, and did my best to make it portable. I’m sharing it with the community.

Here’s what it does:

  • Creates contacts in a remote Exchange mailbox with a limited number of attributes.
  • Creates single or reoccurring appointments in a remote Exchange mailbox with a limited number of attributes.
  • Queries to determine the Exchange server of the user (acts a helper function.)

It does nothing on the client to do this. The communication is all between the ColdFusion server and the Exchange server. I make no guarantees that it will work in your environment, (however if you drop me a line, I’d be happy to help you troubleshoot within reason.) Feel free to modify it and use it to your heart’s content.

Enjoy: Exchange Item Creator.
