Added xml-rpc link.

    1: You can read what Bookie is <a href="purpose.html">here</a>, but here's the
    2: long and short of it:
    3: 
    4: <blockquote>
    5: Bookie is an application which keeps all your bookmarks on a
    6: central server so that you can access bookmarks from anywhere on the web.
    7: </blockquote>
    8: 
    9: <p>I have a server which is currently using <a
   10: href="http://www.xmlrpc.com">XML-RPC</a> and implements three commands:
   11: <code>getRoot</code>, <code>getNode</code> and <code>getChildren</code>.  It
   12: returns <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/rdf/doc">RDF</a> data in the same
   13: format that Mozilla itself internally for bookmarks.  This is all I need to
   14: iterate through a tree.
   15: 
   16: <p>The Mozilla client is still very rudimentary, but it does pick up XML-RPC
   17: queries and display the RDF in a little window..  If you enjoy pain or would
   18: like to help, then you can pick up the code from <a
   19: href="/source/browse/bookie/clients/mozilla/extensions/bookie/resources">here</a>.
   20: Thanks to Aaron Andersen for the cool <a
   21: href="http://www.xulplanet.com/tutorials/xulapp/">tutorial</a>.
   22: 
   23: <p>You do have to have the XML-RPC extensions to use the client.  Go to your
   24: mozilla/extensions/xml-rpc directory and <code>"nmake -f
   25: makefile.win"</code> should take care of the problem.
   26: 
   27: <p>Using the server requires
   28: 
   29: <a href="http://www-uk.hpl.hp.com/people/bwm/rdf/jena/">Jena</a>, <a
   30: href="http://classic.helma.at/hannes/xmlrpc/">XMLRPC-Java</a>, <a
   31: href="http://jakarta.apache.org/log4j/docs/index.html">Log4j</a>, and <a
   32: href="http://www.junit.org/">Junit</a>.  At least.
   33: 
   34: <p>There is an <a href="http://jakarta.apache.org/ant/">Ant</a> script
   35: available <a href="/source/browse/bookie/scripts/build.xml">here</a>.
   36: 
   37: <p>Suggestions and comments are welcome.
