[Openmcl-devel] Need advice on porting an application from LW

I have LW application which communicates with a Java program over a
socket. The CL code acts as the "server".
I need to port this application to OS X.
Note that the LW application makes use the MP package and of the COMM
package (which seems to me to be at a higher level of abstraction than
the OpenMCL socket library).
Given that I do not have much experience with network programming, I
need some advice about how to go ahead and do this in OpenMCL.
The main code I have looks like the following (in LW).
(defun accept-client-connection (socket-handle)
(let ((socket-stream (make-instance 'comm:socket-stream
(setf *sc-visualization-display-socket* socket-stream)
(mp:process-run-function (format nil "Visualization Server Handler ~D"
(defun start-visualization ()
;; Set up the server.
(comm:start-up-server :function 'accept-client-connection
:process-name "Visualization Display Server 9876")
(mp:find-process-from-name "Visualization Display Server 9876"))
The function VISUALIZATION-HANDLE-CLIENT-REQUEST simply implements a
loop that reads from the socket.
I'd appreciate any help and suggestions. I know the OpenMCL code is
probably going to be more complex.
