<p>I have a server which is currently using a hacked up protocol based on FTP.<p>
I have since learned why no-one uses a protocol from the 1970's if they canThe server is written in Java, and uses XML-RPC to communicate to clients.
help it: the code is going to go away and be replaced with XML-RPC, which isThere's also a client written in Swing, which is pretty functional.  The
both simpler and more intelligent.current goal is to get the Mozilla client back into shape given the existence 
of a working server (finally!)
<p>Mozilla client is still very rudimentary, but it does do XML-RPC queries.</p>
If you enjoy pain or would like to help, then you can pick up the code from
clients/mozilla/extensions/bookie/resources (I know it's a long URL, I'm<p>
trying to keep it synced with the mozilla codebase) and copy the directoriesTo get the server running on your machine, download the server.jar file 
into your dist/bin/chrome/bookie directory.  I will see if I can wrap it<a href="http://tersesystems.com/bookie/server.jar">here</a>.  You should start
into an XPInstall script for easier access.  Thanks to Aaron Andersen forthe server with <code>-jar server.jar</code> in a directory for Bookie usage.  
the cool <a href="http://www.xulplanet.com/tutorials/xulapp/">tutorial</a>.No database is required, as Bookie will create its own database if it doesn't 
find one.  It will start on port 9000 by default, but you can specify the port
<p>You do have to have the XML-RPC extensions.  Go to youron the command line.  JDK 1.4 with the -server option is recommended, as the I/O
mozilla/extensions/xml-rpc directory and <code>"nmake -fperformance is MUCH faster than 1.3.1.
makefile.win"</code> should take care of the problem.</p>

To start the client, download the client file 
 <a href="http://tersesystems.com/bookie/client.jar">here</a>.  You do not need
 anything besides the <code>-jar</code> option, although again 1.4 has been found
 to be much faster.  When the client starts up, it will present you with a 
 connections box:
 </p>
 
 <p>
   <ul>
     <li>Create a new connection to http://localhost:9000.
     <li>Double click on the connection to connect to the server.
     <li>When the server asks you if you would like to be registered for the server, say yes.
     <li>Click on the root folder, then click on the File menu and select the import menu item.  
     <li>Import your bookmarks by going to your netscape bookmarks.html file and clicking on that.
         As an example, my Mozilla file is under "C:\Documents and Settings\Will Sargent\Application Data\Mozilla\Profiles\default\mq632ho0.slt"
     <li>Close down and restart the client (there is a bug that stops import from updating).
   </ul>    
 </p>
 
 <p>
 There will be a permanent bookmark server at tersesystems.com.  I am getting that
 working right now, and will update this site when stuff happens.
