 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: 
   <blockquote>Bookie is an application which keeps all your bookmarks on a central
   server so that you can access bookmarks from anywhere on the web.</blockquote>
   
   <p>The server is written in Java, and uses XML-RPC to communicate to clients.
   There's also a client written in Swing, which is pretty functional.  The current
   goal is to get the Mozilla client back into shape given the existence of
   a working server (finally!)</p>
   
   <p>To get the server running on your machine, download the server.zip file
   <a href="http://tersesystems.com/bookie/server.zip">here</a>.  You should
   start the server with 
   <code>java -Dlog4j.configuration=info.xml -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.</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>  </p>
 <ul>  <ul>
        <li>The server is working, although it still is read-only.      <li>Create a new connection to http://localhost:9000.     </li>
        <li>You can import bookmarks into the database via a perl script[<a href="#script">1</a>].  <li>Double click on the connection to connect to the server.     </li>
        <li>You can read bookmarks out of the server[<a     href="#server">2</a>], using the  <li>When the server asks you if you would like to be registered for the
         included client[<a href="#client">3</a>].  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>
   <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>
 </ul>  </ul>
       
   <p></p>
   <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
   <code>http://tersesystems.com:9000/</code>
   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>
   
The mozilla client will connect to the server, but I've had some troubles<p>Suggestions and comments are welcome.  If you have any problems with the
getting the RDF from the server synced up with the user interface.  above instructions, please e-mail me at the address below.</p>
