Re: CAP: why do we need GENERATEUID?
The only thing that searching the archives revealed
was the it was suggested that GENERATEUID be used to
generate unique calids.
But as you suggested in an other post in this thread,
the create can return the UID for the component it created.
Also, when you create a calendar, the calid can be returned to
the client. This will save calls to the CS.
