THE REPL


$ java -jar clojure.jar user=> (+ 1 2)3user=>


  • Interactive
  • Cumbersome
  • ...without rlwrap or JLine
  • Somewhat retarded/amemic
  • ...without dependencies

The command Line



java -jar ~/.m2/repository/com/talios/test/1.0/test-1.0.jar:\  ~/.m2/repository/com/talios/test2/1.0/test2-1.0.jar:\  ~/.m2/repository/com/talios/foo/1.1/foo-1.1.jar:\  ~/.m2/repository/com/xml/parser/1.5/parser-1.5.jar:\  ~/.m2/repository/com/xmpp/xmpp/4.0/xmpp-4.0.jar org.clojure.Main

  • Manually download JAR files?
  • Keep JARs in source project?
  • Not VCS friendly
  • Not developer friendly
  • ...without tooling support...

Apache Maven



  • Familiar to Developers
  • Tool Support ( Jenkins, Idea etc. etc. )
  • Dependency Management
  • Convention Over Configuration
  • Extendable
  • ...maven-exec-plugin to the rescue

  • "Compile Time" Failure!
  • Non-standard error format :(
  • Tool somewhat unfriendly :(
  • Developer somewhat friendly :(

the "compiler" is a LIE

(ns packaging)(println "Hello During Compile")

  • Code runs during "compile"
  • There is no "compile", just "eval and write class files"

java interop

  • Support for maven-toolchain-plugin
  • Beware of compile order...
  • Clojures Java interop could do with improving

aot or not aot - that...is the question

  • Support for AOT and NON-AOT "Compilation"
