<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

Thanks to Aaron Andersen for the cool <aTo get the server running on your machine, download the server.jar file

the server with <code>-jar server.jar</code> in a directory for Bookie usage.  
<p>You do have to have the XML-RPC extensions to use the client.  Go to yourNo database is required, as Bookie will create its own database if it doesn't

 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 is be a permanent bookmark server at tersesystems.com.  To connect to the server
 at tersesystems, please enter <code>http://tersesystems.com:9000/</code> as your URL.  
 <em>Please do not use a normal password</em>: 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.
