Update the index to talk about webstart.

    1: <p>
    2: You can read what Bookie is <a href="purpose.html">here</a>, but here's the
    3: long and short of it: 
    4: </p>
    6: <blockquote>
    7:   Bookie is an application which keeps all your bookmarks on a central
    8:   server so that you can access bookmarks from anywhere on the web.
    9: </blockquote>
   11: <p>
   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.
   16: </p>
   18: <p>
   19:  To get the server running on your machine, download the file
   20:  <a href="">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="">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.
   31: </p>
   33: <p>
   34:  To get the java client running, download the file <a
   35:  href="">here</a>.  
   36:  Unzip the client in a new directory, and execute it with one of the 
   37:  scripts or <code>java -jar client.jar</code>.   
   38: </p> 
   40: <p>Alternatively, you can run the Java client as a Web Start application: <a href=""><img src="webstart.small.jpg"/></a>
   42: <p>
   43:   When the client starts up, it will present you with a connections box:
   44: </p>
   46: <p>
   47: <ul>
   48:     <li>Create a new connection to</li>
   49:   <li>Double click on the connection to connect to the server.</li>
   50:   <li>When the server asks you if you would like to be registered for the
   51: 	  server, say yes.</li>
   52:   <li>Click on the root folder, then click on the File menu and select the
   53: 	  import menu item.       </li>
   54:   <li>
   55:     Import your bookmarks by going to your netscape bookmarks.html file
   56: 	  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"  (See <a href=";start=0&amp;postdays=0&amp;postorder=asc&amp;highlight=">here</a> for how to get it to be somewhere more convenient).
   57:       </li>
   58:   <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>
   59:   <li>You can also export to Netscape if you want to get bookmarks out of the server.</li>
   60:   <li>That's it!</li>
   61: </ul>
   62: </p>    
   64: <p>
   65:  There is an example bookmark server at 
   66:  <a href=""></a>.  To connect
   67:  to the test server, please enter
   68:  <code></code>
   69:  as your URL.  <strong>Please do not use a normal password</strong>:
   70:  most of Bookie's traffic is not  encrypted, and you may be vulnerable to
   71:  packet sniffing.  Also note that there is no expectation of privacy on this
   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.
   74: </p>

   77:  Suggestions and comments are welcome.  If you have any problems with the
   78:  above instructions, please e-mail me at the address below.
