OK, I'll check that out soon - in the mean time, I do have a working
installation to play with, after following the quickstart instructions
from http://abcl-web.sourceforge.net/tutorial.html - maybe the text
and links there should be updated to reflect the above:

## Deploy via web application archive

You can get web application archive (WAR) file for test application
and easily deploy it into servlet container -- if you're using
Tomcat's Manager HTML interface, just use upload form with a 'Deploy'


## Get web-application by parts

Then you can get Java and Lisp files of lispwebapp, and put abcl.jar
into WEB-INF/lib directory, and then deploy it into servlet container
according to it's documentation (for Tomcat, you can unpack it to
/var/lib/tomcat5/webapps/lispwebapp (or whatever home of tomcat is
called) and access url


## configure Servlet container settings

- ABCL won't work if security features are turned on, disabled it for
servlet container (in Debian it's /etc/default/tomcat5). You can try
to grant all permissions to lispwebapp instead, but i was not
successful with it
- make your lispwebapp dir be writable by tomcat user -- ABCL writes
compiled .abcl files near the source files. (most likely you can do it
with chown)
