<p>I have a server which is currently using <a<p>
href="http://www.xmlrpc.com">XML-RPC</a> and implements three commands:The server is written in Java, and uses XML-RPC to communicate to clients.
<code>getRoot</code>, <code>getNode</code> and <code>getChildren</code>.  ItThere's also a client written in Swing, which is pretty functional.  The
returns <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/rdf/doc">RDF</a> data in the samecurrent goal is to get the Mozilla client back into shape given the existence 
format that Mozilla itself internally for bookmarks.  This is all I need toof a working server (finally!)
iterate through a tree.</p>
 
 <p>
 To get the server running on your machine, download the server.jar file 
 <a href="http://tersesystems.com/bookie/server.jar">here</a>.  You should start
 the server with <code>-jar server.jar</code> 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 by default, but you can specify the port
 on the command line.  JDK 1.4 with the -server option is recommended, as the I/O
 performance is MUCH faster than 1.3.1.
 </p>
 
 <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>

A snapshot of the server (and a java client) is <a href="/bookie-20010708.zip">here</a>.  Both the client and the server are fully functional.  (Note that you will need a database and JDBC driver before you start the server, but the SQL scripts are included).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.

<p>The Mozilla client is still very rudimentary, but it does pick up XML-RPC<p>
queries and display the RDF in a little window.  If you enjoy pain or wouldSuggestions and comments are welcome.  If you have any problems with the above
