2: Setup instructions for Bookie.
4: If you're just browsing or don't need to edit files directly, you can look
5: at Bookie through the <a
6: href="http://www.mozdev.org/source/browse/bookie/">web interface</a>.
8: If you want to contribute to Bookie or compile it, then you should grab a
9: CVS <a href="http://www.cvshome.com">client</a> and set up a workspace for bookie.
12: You download bookie by doing this (you only need to login once, the password
13: is guest).
16: cvs -d :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvs login
17: cvs -d :pserver:email@example.com:/cvs co bookie
20: <p>The database needs data in order to work. I wrote /scripts/import.pl which
21: takes in my bookmarks.html file from Netscape and pumps it into the
22: database. It actually relies on a couple of non-standard modules which you
23: may need to download from ActivePerl or CPAN.
25: <p>You need to have a database set up with a database schema. Look in
26: /sql/solid for an example schema. It's not too complicated.
28: <p> You can start the server from the root directory with: <br>
29: <code>java bookie.xmlrpc.BookieServer -Dbookie.logging=./scripts/logging.properties
32: <p>There's an Ant script in ./scripts/ which handles compilation and testing.
34: <p>Right now, the only way you get useful data is with the test class
35: <code>ClientTest</code>, which reads in the RDF to a memory model and writes
36: out the answer to some queries (like 'what children does the root node
37: have?'). More is on the way.
