<p>I have a server which is currently using a hacked up protocol based on<p>
FTP.  I have since learned why no-one uses a protocol from the 1970's ifThe server is written in Java, and uses XML-RPC to communicate to clients.
they can help it: the code is going to go away and be replaced with XML-RPC,There's also a client written in Swing, which is pretty functional.  The
which is both simpler and more intelligent.  Dunno anything about SOAP, butcurrent goal is to get the Mozilla client back into shape given the existence 
since it's not out of committee yet, I'm not going to worry about it.of a working server (finally!)
</p>
<p>Mozilla client is still very rudimentary, but it does do XML-RPC queries. 
If you enjoy pain or would like to help, then you can pick up the code from 
<a href="/source/browse/bookie/clients/mozilla/extensions/bookie/resources">here</a>. 
Thanks to Aaron Andersen for the cool <a 
href="http://www.xulplanet.com/tutorials/xulapp/">tutorial</a>. 
 
<p>You do have to have the XML-RPC extensions to use the client.  Go to your 
mozilla/extensions/xml-rpc directory and <code>"nmake -f 
makefile.win"</code> should take care of the problem. 
 
<p>Using the server requires 
 
<a href="http://www-uk.hpl.hp.com/people/bwm/rdf/jena/">Jena</a>, <a 
href="http://classic.helma.at/hannes/xmlrpc/">XMLRPC-Java</a>, <a 
href="http://jakarta.apache.org/log4j/docs/index.html">Log4j</a>, and <a 
href="http://www.junit.org/">Junit</a>.  At least.  I've been using JBuilder 
and haven't bothered to put together an <a 
href="http://jakarta.apache.org/ant/index.html">Ant</a> script.  If someone 
does, please mail it to me. 
   
 <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.  <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.

 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>
   
Suggestions and comments are welcome.<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.
