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.
The server is written in Java, and uses XML-RPC to communicate to clients. There's also a client written in Swing, which is pretty functional. The current goal is to get the Mozilla client back into shape given the existence of a working server (finally!)
To get the server running on your machine, download the server.jar file
here. You should start
the server with
-jar server.jar in a directory for Bookie usage.
No database is required, as Bookie will create its own database if it doesn't
find one. It will start on port 9000 by default, but you can specify the port
on the command line. JDK 1.4
-server option is recommended, as the I/O performance is
MUCH faster than 1.3.1.
To start the client, download the client file
here. Unjar it with
jar xvf client.jar and it will create a bookie-client directory
with all the source and javadoc. Go to the bin directory, make sure you have
the JAVA_HOME environment variable set, and start up client.bat. JDK 1.3 will
work , although again 1.4 has been found bo be much faster.
When the client starts up, it will present you with a connections box:
There is be a permanent bookmark server at tersesystems.com. To connect to the server
at tersesystems, please enter
http://tersesystems.com:9000/ as your URL.
