<p>I have a server which is currently using a hacked up protocol based on FTP.<p>The server is written in Java, and uses XML-RPC to communicate to clients.
I have since learned why no-one uses a protocol from the 1970's if they canThere's also a client written in Swing, which is pretty functional.  The current
help it: the code is going to go away and be replaced with XML-RPC, which isgoal is to get the Mozilla client back into shape given the existence of
both simpler and more intelligent.a working server (finally!)</p>
<p>Mozilla client is still very rudimentary, but it does do XML-RPC queries.<p>To get the server running on your machine, download the server.zip file
If you enjoy pain or would like to help, then you can pick up the code from<a href="http://tersesystems.com/bookie/server.zip">here</a>.  You should
<a href="/source/browse/bookie/clients/mozilla/extensions/bookie/resources">here</a>.start the server with 
Thanks to Aaron Andersen for the cool <a<code>java -Dlog4j.configuration=info.xml -jar server.jar</code>
href="http://www.xulplanet.com/tutorials/xulapp/">tutorial</a>.in a directory for Bookie usage.   No database is required, as Bookie will
create its own database if it doesn't  find one.  It will start on port 9000
<p>You do have to have the XML-RPC extensions to use the client.  Go to yourby default, but you can specify the port on the command line.  <a
mozilla/extensions/xml-rpc directory and <code>"nmake -f href="http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4/download.html">JDK 1.4</a>  with the
makefile.win"</code> should take care of the problem.<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>When the client starts up, it will present you with a connections box:
 <p>  </p>
     <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>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>
 <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
 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.
   <p>Suggestions and comments are welcome.  If you have any problems with the
