                      7:   Bookie is an application which keeps all your bookmarks on a central

                     12:  The server is written in Java, and uses XML-RPC to communicate to clients.
                     13:  There's also a client written in Swing, which is pretty functional.  The current
                     14:  goal is to get the Mozilla client back into shape given the existence of
                     15:  a working server.

                     19:  To get the server running on your machine, download the server.zip file
                     20:  <a href="http://tersesystems.com/bookie/server.zip">here</a>.  You should
                     21:  start the server with

                     23:   <code>java -Dlog4j.configuration=info.xml -jar server.jar</code>

                     25:  in a directory for Bookie usage.   No database is required, as Bookie will
                     26:  create its own database if it doesn't find one.  It will start on port 9000
                     27:  by default, but you can specify the port on the command line.  
                     28:  <a href="http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4/download.html">JDK 1.4</a> with the
                     29:  <code>-server</code> option is recommended, as the I/O performance is MUCH
                     30:  faster than 1.3.1.

                     67:  to the test server, please enter

                     70:  most of Bookie's traffic is not  encrypted, and you may be vulnerable to
1.37      will       71:  packet sniffing.  Also note that there is no expectation of privacy on this
1.36      will       72:  server.  Although I intend to keep all bookmark information private,  I reserve
                     73:  the right to look at any and all data on the server for debugging purposes.
