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.

Please do not use a normal password: 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.
