25 <section name="Introduction">
26 <p>This allows you to send an email with an iCalendar (.ics) attachment for the event data. Some mail clients,
27 like Google mail, automatically recognize these attachments and let you add the event directly to your calendar.
28 </p>
29 <p>This documentation is meant for developers who understand the
30 <a href="">Grazing Hippo</a> level.</p>

32 <section name="Setup">
33 <subsection name="Dependencies">
34 <p>Add the following dependency to the pom of your website subproject:</p>
35 <pre>
36 <![CDATA[
37 <dependency>
38 <groupId>org.onehippo.forge.socialsharing</groupId>
39 <artifactId>socialsharing</artifactId>
40 </dependency>
41 ]]> </pre>
42 <p>Add the following dependencies to your application container. You can either add them as runtime dependency
43 to your pom, or add the jars directly to the lib directory of e.g. Tomcat.</p>
44 <pre>
45 <![CDATA[
46 <dependency>
47 <groupId>javax.activation</groupId>
48 <artifactId>activation</artifactId>
49 <scope>runtime</scope>
50 </dependency>

59 <section name="HST configuration">
60 <subsection name="Create a bean for the event">
61 <p>Create a bean for the event, meeting or course that extends the HippoBean (may extend it indirectly via
62 your project's base bean) and implements org.onehippo.forge.socialsharing.beans.IEventDocument. </p>
63 </subsection>
64 <subsection name="Create a rendering template">
65 <p>Create a rendering template for the form in which your visitor can enter his or her email address to receive
66 the iCalendar data. The minimal form is:</p>
67 <pre>
68 <![CDATA[
69 <%@ taglib uri="" prefix='hst'%>
70 <form class="form" action="<hst:actionURL />" method="post">
71 <fieldset>
72 <label for="calendaremail">Email address</label>
73 <input type="text" name="email" id="calendaremail" class="input"/>
74 <input type="submit" value="Send event information" class="submit fright"/>
75 </fieldset>
76 </form>
77 ]]> </pre>
78 </subsection>
79 <subsection name="HST Component">
80 <p>The easiest way is to add a component to your page that uses
81 org.onehippo.forge.socialsharing.components.AddToCalendar as hst:componentclassname. You can also extend this
82 class if your doAction method needs to do more than just mail the event data. Link the component to the rendering
83 template made in the previous step. Don't forget to configure the required component parameters mailhost, mailport
84 and fromAddress.</p>
85 </subsection>
86 </section>
87 <section name="How to use it">
88 <p>Now you are ready to create documents with event, meeting or course data. In the front end the visitor sees a
89 form to fill in his or her email address.</p>
90 <p>After submitting the form, the visitor receives an email with an
91 iCalendar attachment (invite.ics). Some email applications recognize these mails as event invitations.
92 Otherwise you can open the attachment in your calendaring application.</p>
