You can read what Bookie is <a href="purpose.html">here</a>, and you can read how to set it up <a href="setup.html">here</a>.You can read what Bookie is <a href="purpose.html">here</a>, but here's the
 long and short of it:
   
<ul><blockquote>
        <li>The server is working, although it still is read-only.  Bookie is an application which keeps all your bookmarks on a
        <li>You can import bookmarks into the database via a perl script[<a href="#script">1</a>].central server so that you can access bookmarks from anywhere on the web.
        <li>You can read bookmarks out of the server[<a href="#server">2</a>], using the</blockquote>

</ul><p>
The server is written in Java, and uses XML-RPC to communicate to clients.
The mozilla client will connect to the server, but I've had some troublesThere's also a client written in Swing, which is pretty functional.  The
getting the RDF from the server synced up with the user interface.  current goal is to get the Mozilla client back into shape given the existence 
of a working server (finally!)

To get the server running on your machine, download the server.jar file 
[1] <a name="script">/scripts/perl/importdb.pl<a href="http://tersesystems.com/bookie/server.jar">here</a>.  You should start
<br>the server with <code>-jar server.jar</code> in a directory for Bookie usage.  
[2] <a name="server">/scripts/server.bat, assuming you have the database up and working...No database is required, as Bookie will create its own database if it doesn't 
<br>find one.  It will start on port 9000 by default, but you can specify the port
[3] <a name="client">/scripts/client.baton 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>
 
 <blockquote>
 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.
