Follow the install instructions to create a few users to get started.
For this guide I created 3 users:
Using tomcat login to htttp://yourserver:8080/calendar/
Create an Address
In order for other users to see you, you have to register your contact information.
Name,Organization adn e-mail is required. Use the e-mail address that was created for tomCat in the mailserver.
Find Address in Address Book
After you added your address, it becomes visible under your Address Book.
This address can be shared with other users(shown later).
Logout and use the account jerryMouse to login again.
Create an other Address
It is not a must have but for our tutorial create a user address for the second user. Use the e-mail address that was created for jerryMouse in the mailserver.
Add another user into the Address Book.
After adding an address for jerryMouse, you can find the address in the Adddress Book. On the side menu there is a link to Add New Address. In order to schedule a meeting with user tomCat, jerryMouse has to add tomCat's address into the his Address Book.
Search for other users.

Each invitees name cell changes color based on their status.
The users also can receive e-mail notification based on their preferences.
