This week I switched from using OpenMCL 0.13.2 to using OpenMCL 0.13.4
for my current application - a web application that is the 'backend' or
'manager' application/interface to a dynamic web site, using portable
allegro serve, lisp server pages and an interface to postgresql.
Defsystem 3.3 interim had problems with provide and require no longer
coming from ccl, but from cl: this was easy to fix.
Eric Marsden's pg.lisp Postgresql interface 0.14 was using finally do
in loop while now just finally is accepted.
Portable Allegro Serve's 1.2.12c was using the unix feature which was
added to OpenMCL so some code suddenly became active - added some (not
openmcl) to the reader macros did the trick.
On the subject of Portable Allegro Serve: why is ansi loop from the
portability layer used for openmcl, it seems that openmcl's own loop
works just as well ?
PS: Writing Web applications using Common Lisp (my development/testing
environment is Mac OS X, OpenMCL, ILisp and Emacs 188.8.131.52 with Mac
support - deployment will propably be CMUCL on Linux) is immensely more
fun than using Java and furthermore, the resulting application is very
fast (faster than Java that is, without any optimization or type
declarations! ). Try it, you'll love it.
