The latest calendar server code has a generic directory module that can be 
used to populate accounts. There are several different implementations of 
this, including an xml file based variant, and open directory variant, and 
an SQL database variant. If your web app uses a directory or database of 
some form for its users and you can access that from "outside" then you 
could write your own calendar server directory implementation to get user 
accounts directly from there.
