19<dd>"Maxima algebraic computation software compiles with ABCL. The test suite
20runs fairly quickly on Windows XP and, after work by Robert Dodier, 86
21percent of the test suite is passed successfully, although some individual
22tests crash the suite. If you want to compile Maxima with ABCL lisp, check
23out the Maxima source code and following the instructions in INSTALL.lisp."

30I'm using ABCL for various web projects since aproximately 2004. None of them have gone public (so far), so i can't give a link.
31I released sort of framework for building web apps with ABCL was released into
32open source: <a href="http://abcl-web.sourceforge.net/">abcl-web</a>.
33Another thing probably worth mentioning -- bindings to Jena2 RDF/SPARQL library:
34http://abcl-web.sourceforge.net/rdf.html (it's sort of incomplete but usable, i think).
35<br />
36What i like in ABCL is that it has reasonably stable multithreading, does
37not crash unpredictably (unlike some other implementations) and can be
38fixed in more-or-less easy way if something goes bad, and access to Java
39libs, of course. I had some problems with it, though, to name some:
40<ul>
41<li>SLIME being botched (i suspect due to CLOS invoking compiler which is not
42reentrant),</li>
43<li>CLOS not thread safe,</li>
44<li>compiler producing wrong code.</li>
45</ul>
46That certainly made experience with ABCL less pleasant that it could be,
47but in general it was more-or-less good.

52<dd>I'm currently integrating ABCL in a small, unreleased open source
53project. It's a sort of graphical object browser for Java (but its GUI
54sucks badly for now...). It can be run locally or as a client-server
55application. I'm adding scripting support so you can access some
56functionality from Lisp (or in principle any other Java Scripting API
57compatible script engine, though I'm focusing on ABCL).

62<dd>I am in the process of integrating ABCL with <a href="http://mathrider.org">MathRider</a> in preparation for when Maxima is able to run on it.
