You can read what Bookie is here, but here's the long and short of it:
Bookie is an application which keeps all your bookmarks on a central server so that you can access bookmarks from anywhere on the web.
I have a server which is currently using a hacked up protocol based on FTP. I have since learned why no-one uses a protocol from the 1970's if they can help it: the code is going to go away and be replaced with XML-RPC, which is both simpler and more intelligent. Dunno anything about SOAP, but since it's not out of committee yet, I'm not going to worry about it.
Mozilla client is still very rudimentary, but it does do XML-RPC queries. If you enjoy pain or would like to help, then you can pick up the code from here. Thanks to Aaron Andersen for the cool tutorial.
You do have to have the XML-RPC extensions to use the client. Go to your
mozilla/extensions/xml-rpc directory and
makefile.win" should take care of the problem.
Using the server requires Jena, XMLRPC-Java, Log4j, and Junit. At least. I've been using JBuilder and haven't bothered to put together an Ant script. If someone does, please mail it to me.
Suggestions and comments are welcome.
