updated xmlrpc link

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>I have a server which is currently using <a
href="http://www.xmlrpc.com">XML-RPC</a> and implements three commands:
<code>getRoot</code>, <code>getNode</code> and <code>getChildren</code>.  It
returns <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/rdf/doc">RDF</a> data in the same
format that Mozilla itself internally for bookmarks.  This is all I need to
iterate through a tree.

<p>The Mozilla client is still very rudimentary, but it does pick up XML-RPC
queries and display the RDF in a little window..  If you enjoy pain or would
like to help, then you can pick up the code from <a
href="/source/browse/bookie/clients/mozilla/extensions/bookie/resources">here</a>.
Thanks to Aaron Andersen for the cool <a
href="http://www.xulplanet.com/tutorials/xulapp/">tutorial</a>.

<p>You do have to have the XML-RPC extensions to use the client.  Go to your
<a href="http://lxr.mozilla.org/seamonkey/source/extensions/xml-rpc/">mozilla/extensions/xml-rpc</a> directory and <code>"nmake -f
makefile.win"</code> should take care of the problem.

<p>Using the server requires

<a href="http://www-uk.hpl.hp.com/people/bwm/rdf/jena/">Jena</a>, <a
href="http://xmlrpc.helma.org/">XMLRPC-Java</a>, <a
href="http://jakarta.apache.org/log4j/docs/index.html">Log4j</a>, and <a
href="http://www.junit.org/">Junit</a>.  At least.

<p>There is an <a href="http://jakarta.apache.org/ant/">Ant</a> script
available <a href="/source/browse/bookie/scripts/build.xml">here</a>.

<p>Suggestions and comments are welcome.
