Thanks for your help.

Because I've a lot of problems of java memory and Truncated class files, my
intention is try to compile in the same platform with ABCL, but only
compile, not to load from ABCL a file and then compile all files. If there
are some way to compile all files with abcl and package... (I don't know if

I see this web page and looks like, that you can load your fasl files
(compiled abcl lisp files) from a jar file and then use it from Java, but I
don't know who use it:

You can't do such a thing. Compiled Lisp code is implementation
dependent. In general, you can not even be sure that two different
versions of the same implementation, or the same version on different
platforms, will be able to execute each other's compiled code.

For ABCL specifically, FASLs (compiled files) are portable across
platforms, and are generally compatible with several versions of ABCL
unless something big changed in the compiler between those versions
(in that case, the FASL version number is changed, too).
