CLforJava is an unfinished implementation of Common Lisp in the Java programming language. The project is actively developed at the College of Charleston. It allows for the compilation of Lisp code into Java byte code, and also provides the ability to use Lisp types and code from within Java programs.
The CLforJava project is a long-term effort by undergraduate and graduate students to create a completely new implementation of the Common Lisp computer language. A key feature differentiating it from other Lisp/Java implementations is its ability to “intertwine” with the Java language. The goal of the project is to build an entirely new compiler written in CLforJava itself.
