We currently use a Visual Studio application to query our Outlook Server to check scheduling of our conference rooms. This was set up several years ago, and I want to re-investigate whether we can do this within a Gateway Script. Online, I see that there are Python libraries that seem to do what I want. Is there a way to do this in an Ignition Gateway Script?
As long as the python libraries you want to use need no ctypes access to DLLs, they should run in jython. You would add them to the user-libs/pylibs folder of your Ignition install. Give it a try and let us know how it turns out.
Well, I now see that the python libraries for working with Outlook did have compiled windows components that are obviously not compatible with Java.
