4The Java Foreign Linker Interface (JFLI) provides an abstraction to
5manipulate Java classes from Armed Bear Common Lisp that has been
6ported to other Lisp implementations.

12------
13
14jfli (http://jfli.sf.net) is a library that provides access to Java
15from Lisp. jfli-abcl is jfli modified to work with ABCL
16(http://armedbear-j.sf.net); it provides the same interface to Java,
17but, since ABCL lives on the JVM, it doesn't need jni.
18
19jfli-abcl has an experimental NEW-CLASS macro that writes and loads a
20Java class at runtime, and defines the usual jfli-like Lisp interface
21to it. See the documentation of NEW-CLASS and the examples for the
22syntax. If you want to use it, make sure that (1) asm.jar
23(http://asm.objectweb.org) is in your classpath, and (2) the runtime
24generated Java classes are in the Java package of the same name as the
25Lisp package in which they're defined, like this:
26
27(in-package "FOO")
28(new-class "FOO.MyClass" ...)
29
30Caveats: jfli-abcl inherits all the bugs from jfli; see the archives
31of the jfli-users mailing list for a partial list. It probably also
32adds some of its own. I'm particularly interested in the latter type.

34Please send (ABCL-specific) bug reports, suggestions, examples,
35and whatever else you can think of, to asimon@math.bme.hu.
