! 14: You download bookie by doing this (you only need to login once, the password
! 15: is guest). Please use the prune option when checking out and updating, since
! 16: the CVS tree has a lot of dead branches in it.

! 25: The java client is in <code>/clients/swing</code>. There is an
! 26: <a href="http://jakarta.apache.org/ant">ant</a> script that should compile
! 27: everything. The client depends on Jena, Apache XML-RPC, Log4J and Xerces.
! 28: All the libraries should be available in lib. The client's main class is
! 29: <code>com.tersesystems.bookie.client.Client</code>.

! 33: The java server is in <code>/server</code>. Again, the
! 34: <a href="http://jakarta.apache.org/ant">ant</a> script that should compile
! 35: everything. The server currently depends on JTidy, Marquee XML-RPC,
! 36: Jisp, Servlet 2.2, Log4J, and Xerces, which are all available in lib. The
! 37: server's main class is <code>com.tersesystems.bookie.service.xmlrpc.BookieServlet</code>.

! 41: The server will create four files on initialization in the current directory:
! 42: <ul>
! 43: <li>profile.db - a database of profile information.</li>
! 44: <li>profile.idx - an index of profile.db</li>
! 45: <li>bookmarks.db - a database of bookmarks information.</li>
! 46: <li>bookmarks.idx - an index of bookmarks.db</li>
! 47: </ul>
! 48: These databases contain all the information needed for the server to work. Deleting
! 49: these files will cause the server to start off fresh.
! 50: </p>
1.7 will 51:
1.9 ! will 52: <p>
! 53: The server also starts up with a large amount of debugging information. You can
! 54: override the default configuration by specifying the log4j configuration file on
! 55: the command line with <code>-Dlog4j.configuration=minimal.txt</code> where the
! 56: file <code>minimal.txt</code> contains the following:

! 60: # Set root logger level to INFO and its only appender to A1.
! 61: log4j.rootLogger=INFO, A1
! 63: # A1 is set to be a ConsoleAppender.
! 64: log4j.appender.A1=org.apache.log4j.ConsoleAppender
! 66: # A1 uses PatternLayout.
! 67: log4j.appender.A1.layout=org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout

! 72: The server does not attempt to limit multiple logins on the same account
! 73: from different servers. However, care should be taken with this feature,
! 74: as there is no facility to distribute messages between clients that a
! 75: branch has been deleted.
! 76: </p>
1.1 will 77:
1.5 will 78: <p>
1.9 ! will 79: No caching or pre-loading of bookmarks is performed on the server, but
! 80: performance seems okay for now (and if anything seems bound on the XML
! 81: processing and IO overhead). Database operations are not transactional.
