Calendar Server should verify that addresses are valid #125
3/27/07 3:21 PM Wilfredo Sanchez: Calendar Server should verify that addresses are valid
Where possible, the server should verify the validity of URI forms used as calendar user addresses. Right now, if your client sends us a CUA of "mailto:Joe" the server happily stores it. Since this could cause another client to raise an error, this should be caught and prohibited by the server.
3/27/07 3:22 PM Wilfredo Sanchez: Perhaps in iComponent.validateForCalDAV() or some such
3/28/07 6:56 AM Cyrus Daboo: Given that every URI scheme has its own syntax, it would be a little hard to validate all of them. Certainly we could do the common ones we expect to deal with, mailto, http, https, ldap, urb:uuid.
We would have to ensure this is checked on a regular PUT, a COPY or MOVE into a calendar collection (from a non-calendar collection at least), and for POST on Outbox.
