Using the import servlet

Revision as of 15:42, 19 March 2007 by Tierlieb (talk | contribs) (complete rewrite.)

There are two things to do with the import servlet:

  • You can use it to import data into OX: Hyperion
    • Example: Importing your Outlook data by exporting it as CSV and then importing it.
  • you can extend it to import new formats
    • Example: Currently, the CSV format can only be used to import contacts. You can extend it to import appointments.

Importing data using existing importers is done using the API, as explained in HTTP API.

Adding a new importer is explained in Building an importer.
