calendar implementation

I have a question regarding thoughts on calendar implementation within
my ruby on rails site. One of the requirements of the calendar
functionality is that other users must be able to make appointments
within an individuals calendar. Available time slots can be clicked
and reserved. I am wondering what the positives and negatives are of
using the google calendar plugin or using another calendar plugin for
ruby. Is there any clear winner? Does anyone have any experience
with using the google calendar within a rails application? Also, does
the google calendar api allow you to fully embed the google calendar
within your application? Thanks for thoughts.

Gee whiz, I'm wondering about this too. Hasn't anyone done this?

Well I have used a couple of calendar plugins for my application..One is
calendar helper which u get it from
http://topfunky.net/svn/plugins/calendar_helper/

and the other one is family Calendar plugin which has inbuilt user
control facility even that will be useful.

to use the Google Calendar API?

Hey, do you know how to test google calendar while in production mode
on my local server. Is it possible to actually send data to the
google calendar and update it to see if it is working?
thanks, Dave
