  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.

  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.
