    1: 
    2: You can read what Bookie is <a href="purpose.html">here</a>, but here's the
    3: long and short of it: 
    4: <blockquote>Bookie is an application which keeps all your bookmarks on a central
    5: server so that you can access bookmarks from anywhere on the web.</blockquote>
    6: 
    7: <p>The server is written in Java, and uses XML-RPC to communicate to clients.
    8: There's also a client written in Swing, which is pretty functional.  The current
    9: goal is to get the Mozilla client back into shape given the existence of
   10: a working server (finally!)</p>
   11: 
   12: <p>To get the server running on your machine, download the server.zip file
   13: <a href="http://tersesystems.com/bookie/server.zip">here</a>.  You should
   14: start the server with 
   15: <code>java -Dlog4j.configuration=info.xml -jar server.jar</code>
   16: in a directory for Bookie usage.   No database is required, as Bookie will
   17: create its own database if it doesn't  find one.  It will start on port 9000
   18: by default, but you can specify the port on the command line.  <a
   19:  href="http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4/download.html">JDK 1.4</a>  with the
   20: <code>-server</code> option is recommended, as the I/O performance is MUCH
   21: faster than 1.3.1.</p>
   22: 
   23: <p>To get the java client running, download the client.zip file <a
   24:  href="http://tersesystems.com/bookie/client.zip">here</a>.  Unzip the client in a new directory, and execute it with one of the scripts or <code>java -jar client.jar</code>.  
   25: 
   26: <p>When the client starts up, it will present you with a connections box:
   27: </p>
   28: <p>  </p>
   29: <ul>
   30:     <li>Create a new connection to http://localhost:9000.     </li>
   31:   <li>Double click on the connection to connect to the server.     </li>
   32:   <li>When the server asks you if you would like to be registered for the
   33: server, say yes.     </li>
   34:   <li>Click on the root folder, then click on the File menu and select the
   35: import menu item.       </li>
   36:   <li>Import your bookmarks by going to your netscape bookmarks.html file
   37: and clicking on that.         As an example, my Mozilla file is under "C:\Documents
   38: and Settings\Will Sargent\Application Data\Mozilla\Profiles\default\mq632ho0.slt"
   39:         </li>
   40:   <li>Or, if you are using Internet Explorer, you can import your bookmarks by going 
   41:   to "C:\Documents and Settings\Will Sargent\Favorites" and importing the favorites from there.</li>
   42:   <li>You can also export to Netscape if you want to get bookmarks out of the server.</li>
   43:   <li>That's it!</li>
   44: </ul>
   45:     
   46: <p></p>
   47: <p>There is an example bookmark server at 
   48: <a href="http://tersesystems.com">http://tersesystems.com</a>.  To connect
   49: to the test server, please enter
   50: <code>http://tersesystems.com:9000/</code>
   51: as your URL.  <strong>Please do not use a normal password</strong>:
   52: most of Bookie's traffic is not  encrypted, and you may be vulnerable to
   53: packet sniffing.  Also note that there is no  expectation of privacy on this
   54: server.  Although I intend to keep all bookmark information private,  I reserve
   55: the right to look at any and all data on the server for debugging purposes.
   56: </p>

   58: <p>Suggestions and comments are welcome.  If you have any problems with the
   59: above instructions, please e-mail me at the address below.</p>
