2============
3
4The contributions to Armed Bear constitute Common Lisp only code that
5is potentially useful for system construction and distribution.

7quicklisp-abcl
8
9    Loads and installs the Quicklisp library manager from the network
10    if not locally present.
11
12abcl-asdf
13
14    ABCL specific extensions to ASDF, including resolution of binary
15    JVM artifacts cached from the network according to Maven metadata
16    with the derived transitive relationships.
17   
18
19asdf-jar
20
21    Package ASDF system definitions into JVM artifacts for
22    distribution

25jss
26   
27    A higher-order, more Lisp oriented interface for constructing Lisp
28    interfaces to existing binary code libraries available for the JVM
29    built on the primitives provided by the JAVA package.  Used in the
30    [lsw2][] Semantic Web package for dealing with OWL2 ontologies in
31    RDF(S) and other notations.

35jfli
36
37    The "original" higher-order JVM interface descended from Rich
38    Hickey's work on the JVM before Clojure.  This implementation
39    currently uses a fork of the public [JFLI][] API that uses the
40    java interop of the ABCL JAVA package instead of the JNI
41    interface.

45mvn
46
47    A collection of various useful JVM artifacts downloaded and cached
48    by the Aether Maven connector.  Requires the maven-3.0.3
49    executable "mvn" (or "mvn.bat" under MSFT Windows) to be in the
50    current processes's path. These artifacts load the binary
51    artifacts necessary in the current JVM process,
52
53   
54    mvn currently includes:
55   
56    jna
57        JNA provides an the ability to dynamically link to shared
58        executables on the host platform, needed by CFFI.
59
60    log4j
61        An example of a dependency without an explicit version.
62
63abcl-introspect
64
65    Advanced introspection of Java and Lisp runtime classes
66    representation.
