Common Lisp as a replacement for Java

Postby xibalba » Tue Nov 15, 2011 2:06 pm

Has anyone developed any applications which use Common Lisp in internet or networking situations, for which Java is normally used?

That would be interesting...But aren't you pleased with Java for your needs?

I've never used Java. I'm just wondering out loud, and I'm curious if Common Lisp is a good fit for web-based and networking applications - if it has some intrinsic advantages over other languages in that area.

There are some neat frameworks for web applications. My favorite is weblocks, though I haven't used it much.

Shen might become a Lispy alternative to Java.

Yeah I really hope so, they are doing some really cool things with Shen. I haven't had the luxury of time to spend playing with it, but I can imagine the power of a lisp transcompiler. I've always loved transcompiled languages because I think it's a step towards the future in terms of eliminating boundaries between programmers.
