Setup instructions for Bookie.
If you're just browsing or don't need to edit files directly, you can look
at Bookie through the <a
If you want to contribute to Bookie or compile it, then you should grab a
CVS <a href="http://www.cvshome.com">client</a> and set up a workspace for bookie.
You download bookie by doing this (you only need to login once, the password
cvs -d :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvs login
cvs -d :pserver:email@example.com:/cvs co bookie
<p>The database needs data in order to work. I wrote /scripts/import.pl
which takes in my bookmarks.html file from Netscape and pumps it into the
database. The script relies on <code>HTML::Filter</code> and
<code>HTML::TokeParser</code> may need to download from ActivePerl or CPAN.
<p>You need to have a database set up with a database schema. Look in
/sql/solid for an example schema. It's not too complicated.
<p> You can start the server from the root directory with:
<code>java bookie.xmlrpc.BookieServer -Dbookie.logging=./scripts/logging.properties
<p>There's an Ant script in ./scripts/ which handles compilation and testing.
<p>Right now, the only way you get useful data is with the test class
<code>ClientTest</code>, which reads in the RDF to a memory model and writes
out the answer to some queries (like 'what children does the root node
have?'). More is on the way.
