We are making small desktop application (in Java), which is used to make simple invoices etc.
In this application there is a data base with customers. We would like to make some link to outlook contacts in order to synchronize Outlook contacts with our own contacts (both way). It should either use Outlook contact folder or Outlook Public contact forlder.
User of this program should be able to set address to these Outlook folders.
Additionally it would be good if user can optionally synchronise only contacts with the same category (chosen during first synchronization). As we know, in an Outlook folder it is possible to put any category (categories) to any contact.
If synchronizing is difficult then our application could use just Outlook data base (without own data base).
It should be possible to integrate this program into our Java aplication
We could eventually work directly with Outlook contacts (instead of synchronizing them with our contacts)
