<p>I have a server which is currently using a hacked up protocol based on FTP.<p>

 a working server.
<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

into your dist/bin/chrome/bookie directory.  I will see if I can wrap it <a href="http://tersesystems.com/bookie/server.zip">here</a>.  You should
into an XPInstall script for easier access.  Thanks to Aaron Andersen for start the server with 
the cool <a href="http://www.xulplanet.com/tutorials/xulapp/">tutorial</a>.
  <code>java -Dlog4j.configuration=info.xml -jar server.jar</code>
<p>You do have to have the XML-RPC extensions.  Go to your
mozilla/extensions/xml-rpc directory and <code>"nmake -f in a directory for Bookie usage.   No database is required, as Bookie will
makefile.win"</code> should take care of the problem. create its own database if it doesn't find one.  It will start on port 9000
  by default, but you can specify the port on the command line.  
  <a href="http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4/download.html">JDK 1.4</a> with the
  <code>-server</code> option is recommended, as the I/O performance is MUCH
  faster than 1.3.1.
 </p>
 
 <p>
  To get the java client running, download the client.zip file <a
  href="http://tersesystems.com/bookie/client.zip">here</a>.  
  Unzip the client in a new directory, and execute it with one of the 
  scripts or <code>java -jar client.jar</code>. 
 </p> 
 
 <p>
   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>
   <li>Double click on the connection to connect to the server.</li>
   <li>When the server asks you if you would like to be registered for the
           server, say yes.</li>
   <li>Click on the root folder, then click on the File menu and select the
           import menu item.       </li>
   <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>
   <li>Or, if you are using Internet Explorer, you can import your bookmarks by going 
   to "C:\Documents and Settings\Will Sargent\Favorites" and importing the favorites from there.</li>
   <li>You can also export to Netscape if you want to get bookmarks out of the server.</li>
   <li>That's it!</li>
 </ul>
 </p>    
 
 <p>
  There is an example bookmark server at 
  <a href="http://tersesystems.com">http://tersesystems.com</a>.  To connect
  to the test server, please enter
  <code>http://tersesystems.com:9000/</code>
  as your URL.  <strong>Please do not use a normal password</strong>:
  most of Bookie's traffic is not  encrypted, and you may be vulnerable to
  packet sniffing.  Also note that there is no  expectation of privacy on this
  server.  Although I intend to keep all bookmark information private,  I reserve
  the right to look at any and all data on the server for debugging purposes.
