I have tried the maxima-server.lisp. It works reallly more robuster than
$ maxima -s <port-numer>
I'm writing a small wrapper in Java to start, load maxima-server, and
after some time terminate the maxima process
to bind it in a Tomcat server, so I don't need to use Python. If I
can, I'll publish these work under an opensource licence.

Have a nice weekend.
